Well on Friday 19th July I had my first Cimzia injections. Was a bit nervous at first, especially when my nurse said I could have a go at doing the second one....but after a few minutes of psyching myself up I did it. And boy how easy was it!!! It didn't hurt at all when I put the needle in and when I started to inject there was only a slight stinging sensation.
It's been 2 days and I haven't taken any other top up medication....the stiffness appears to have eased slightly and the pain where it was a 10 before is now an 8. So far so good!!! I feel quite positive at the moment....I know it's only early days but I have a good feeling about this.
Hope everyone is OK and still enjoying this glorious weather......I found my children's old paddling pool the other weekend and have been spending quite a bit of time sitting with my hands and feet in the water....a bit of relief for the inflammation!
Take care everybody. xx
