Remicade or Pred causing swelling in legs

Hi all,

I had my second Remi infusion about a week and a half ago. I have been having leg swelling and ankle swelling recently. I had a little leg swelling before starting the Remi but it seems to be more consistent now. My arm has also gotten swollen at one point, but the leg swelling is far more often (esp the knees). Any thoughts on whether it is Remicade or Pred causing the swelling? I was on 30 mg of Pred when I started my Remi treatments, I am now down to 5mg.
