Hello everyone about a year ago I was on vacation in Central America and I was bit by a mosquito when I came back to the states I came back positive for the Zika virus. However I just found out 3 weeks ago and waiting to see what my rheumatologist and my infection disease doctor and see if I will stay with RA or it's side effects of the Zika. Especially because I'm seronegative.
My symptoms initially and flare ups (caused by high stress, poor diet, cold) include moderate joint pain, uveitis, swelling of my axillary lymph nodes (,first symptoms I get to tell me I'm flaring up).
I'm on Rasuvo and Humira. Had only one 5 steroid shots and I have gained 35 pounds in 1 year. Has this happened to anyone? This has been so depressing because of the weight gain and my mild joint pain gets worst.
Anyone having these issues?
