Trevor, what you describe as your "possible ALS" symptoms could be complications of your Ulcerative Colitis. UC is an Inflammatory bowel disease, and if it's not properly treated causing complications affecting CNC and musculoskeletal. Trial of Remicade IV sounds like a reasonable approach by your GI.
Good luck, Erica

I think that she meant CNS-Central Nervous System.
