General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Remicade
Can remicade cause carpal tunnel symptoms and sciatica pain. On 9/30/14, I had a remicade infusion for psoriatic arthritis. The next day, I had excruciating pain and numbness in both wrist and all 10 fingers just like to carpal tunnel, which I have never had. I called my doctor, but I was in such pain I could not drive, so he prescribed Tramadol which I just finished taking today with no relief. I have an appt. with him on 10/21/14, then just today, I started having sciatica pain down my left leg which I did have surgery for in 2008.

Can someone please get back to me with an answer.

Thank you

BE CAREFUL WITH VITAMIN D3 - IT STOPS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF REMICADE
If you are on Remicade for arthritis and it stops working (i.e., you start having severe joint pain out of the blue), determine if you have started a new supplement that contains Vitamin D3. If 'yes' - STOP. You'll be better in a week or so. I experimented twice and determined - it's the Vitamin D3. Other things that have the same effect are grapefruit juice and, to a lesser extent, other citrus juices - but the effect is almost immediate with the juices - a few hours, whereas the pain from Vitamin D3 takes a few days to appear once you start the supplement. It is truly debilitating. Note; I have also had negative effects from simply eating grapefruit, oranges, some variety of strawberries and some variety of tomatoes - but not as severe as when drinking juice (because of the concentration).
