due this problem i got swelling in my left knee several times with savior pain... my doctor advicing me to take remicade injection for controling this desease... pls advice.
is it r/a in the knee or osteo or both. i was diagnosed with r/a about 10 yrs ago, then about 4yrs ago my knee started hurting and i took steriod injections eventually ended up at orthopedic doctor and had osteo so bad no cartilage and there was a big whole in my knee cap. i would first go to orthopedic doctor and let him look at your knee first. in my opinion remicade is pretty powerful, i would try something much milder like enbrel, which is an injection you give yourself at home. the enbrel is used alot and very successful. unless you have tried something like this and not worked, i myself would not use remicade. good luck
