Hello, I first posted a few years ago here about some random pain in my hands and I didn't know what it was. A lot has changed since then....
I currently take MTX, Hydroxychloroquine and Sulfasalazine. I've been on them for about 2 years now and broadly speaking my RA is under control, I feel stiff and tired but no flares. Unfortunately me feet cause me a great deal of trouble. Even a short walk will cause pain in my toes, the soles of my feet and my ankles. After a weekend with the kids I'll find myself shuffling/hobbling around the house. The only cure for my feet tend to be rest and Naproxen (NSAID).
After a recent MRI on my feet my consultant at Guy's hospital in London has recommended a JAK inhibitor (filgotonib). I think they're a new type of drug for moderate RA. Until he mentioned them I'd never heard about them. Has anyone had any experience with them?
