I know how you feel I was on lefludomide and it didn't work for me that when they put me on embrel but I'm having bad reactions to that so waiting for a other med

Hope you feel better soon love Karen x


Hi its not nice when your meds are not doing what we think they should be. hopefully you will get appointment very soon with your rheumy. take care xx


I hope you get the right meds v soon. Stay safe xx


I am so so so glad to hear someone else saying that they thought their symptoms were "in there heads"! I. Think this all the time, well a lot of the times. I have to keep calling my rhumy nurse to make sure that my symptoms are not a figment of my imagination!!!! She just laughs at me, bless her. I wasn't able to take my infusion for the month of march as my white cells are too low so it's back to bloods again and then we'll see how things pan out from there. Thanks chemar, you have put my 'over active mind'at ease for another wee while.X
