Hi everyone my name is jacinta, nice to meet u all. I suffer from RA for the last few years, Im just wondering if anyone has tryed naltrexone, and if so could u let me know how it went for u, thank you. Hope your all have a good enough day and that u are able to find some pain relief gb ..
Hello my name is Sally,I have R.A and am still trying out medications ,the last one didn't suit my liver so had to come of so I've bin cold turkey for several weeks now and it's getting more painful everyday,Sometimes I can't even sit myself up in bed to get out,I have it in my Hands,knees, feet ,shoulders,and ankles.Im hopeing to start on Adalimumab very soon.I feel very alone and haven't had much support so far.
Hi I have suffered with this illness for over eight years, at first I was given mtx and naproxen but I soon discovered that I also had liver complaint due to the medication given and was soon taken of naproxen. I have tried many even one I was taken put me in hospital for over a week with an infection which I could not shift. I was then put back on MTX (methotrexate) injections again I had suffered bad reactions and soon taken off them, And put on a Anti-TNF treatment called CIMzia (if I have spelt it right) self inject. It was brilliant treatment soon felt better in myself after two days! But also short lived I cam out in a rash all over my body and again taken off it. I am now on Tocilizumab Infusion it helps but not as good as Cimzia and it leaves me tired for about a week to ten days after treatment. And also starts to wear off during the last few days before another treatment. I will soon be on self inject soon so I don't have to spend and hour to two hours hooked up to a drip. I am also on steroids and morphine when the pain gets too much
I'm now on Tocilizumab and doing quit well,Yes I have to go to hospital every month and sit for a hour and a half don't mind as long as it keeps working.Ive come of the steroids as I can cope with a few aches and pains,but have had a couple of flare ups but mainly in my hands.Ive also bin suffering with sciatica which I'm hoping is under control not with tablets but sports massage.Fingers crossed .
Hi all i got a steroid injection 5 days ago into hip for all over imflamion but im no better of stiĺ sore and swollen feet and legs. How long till i feel better?
