I have ra, lupus, raynauds, sjogrens and underactive thyroid. After several years of trying different treatments, painkillers etc I got funding for an infusion of Rituximab. Although this has made a vast improvement to many symptoms(unfortunately not pain in already damaged joints) As it brings your immune system down I have had every bug,cold, cough & infection<all of which put me to bed for several days.
My question is...... do I get a second dose or not??.....its such a catch 22 situation.
Advice please, lovely lupies xx
