I am  on Remicade Infliximab which is a biological medication given by infusion every six weeks.  I also take Methotrexate 6 tabs once a week. This has really worked well for many years.  But I had a virus about four weeks ago and it has knocked my medication sideways and I ache in many of my joints.  Can’t wait for my next infusion too put me back on track.

I am on Naproxen which is an NSAID, it’s working at the moment, but gives me heartburn so i take Lansoprozole to help with the stomach acid. If I keep active and take my pills everyday, then I do get relief from symptoms, 1 or 2 on the aches and pains scale. Usually once a month i convince myself that i am cured and take a break , but within 24 hours I start to feel the stiffness and aches and pains coming back on and it takes about 3 days of taking Naproxen again for the pain to ease. Hate taking someone that makes me feel ill but its better than the pains.
