Swelling/numbness in hands and feet

I'm been on remicade since Sept 27, 2013, and since then have had swollen fingers with numbness and tingling (like if feels when a limb falls asleep). I also have the same to a lesser extent in my feet. It's especially bad in the morning when I first wake up, but it never completely goes away.

Has anyone else experienced this with remicade?

Numbness and tingling in the extremities yes but not specifically Remicade but possibly linked to biologics in general.

Remicade can cause adverse neurological reactions so it's important to address these with your GI.

Probably not......will look into it, tanks for advice. Although I'm taking my dose of vitamin D and cod liver oil, maybe some magnesium will bring some more sense to it all.
