Thanks for all the replies, everyone. I have now been on Remicade (inflectra) for 1.5 years. My morning stiffness is quite a bit better, but other than that, I am struggling with plantar fasciatis, neuromas in my toes, stiff lower back (unable to bend forward), stiff neck and shoulders. Initially, I wonder if I should switch to cosentyx...

When NSAIDs and DMARDs really do not work for a patient might they have been misdiagnosed???

It is a possibility the rheumatologist must consider.
