This is my first time posting here. I have posted on the PMR board which was very helpful. I have been convinced I have it in addition to RA because of chronic shoulder pain, particularly the right one. Up until 2 years ago I had been pain free on Enbrel followed by Remicade and then it all went pear-shaped. During this time I have been on Zeljanz, Orencia - now Actemra for the past 4 months plus 25mgs of Methotrexate. There's been the Prednisolone rollercoaster - currently at 5mgs daily and of course the OTC's, paracetamol and ibuprofen - haven't tried co-codamol yet but will be asking for it to get a decent night's sleep. Fortunately, we have an adjustable bed so I sleep completely upright which does help. I have an MRI in two weeks, then in January I think the doctor will abandon Actemra and start me on Rutiximab. Being seropositive I am hopeful. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who is or has been in a similar position . At this point I don't know what is going on but I should be thankful my spine and hips are okay - ish. I can honestly say I have never experienced pain, stiffness and disability like this. If I could just go up a bit on the prednisolone I know I would be so much better but I am going to have to wait a bit longer.
