Hope everyone is as pain free as possible.
Yes, the Rheumy nurse finally rang me on Wed re my acceptance for anti TNF.
I HAVE been accepted.....Yes, result!
I could hardly believe it, i had to ask her to repeat what she said!
This might be reassuring for those of you that suffer mainly with the feet.
When i have had DAS scores done in the past, i have failed as it was done on my hands only. So because of the active inflammation present (shown on ultrasound) in the feet, the consultant put my case forward with DAS scoring done on my feet. I have to have all future DAS scores done just on my feet.
They are organizing ENBREL for me to inject, i obviously don't know anything about these drugs, but i am sure those of you lovely people out there that have used this drug will help me.
I must admit I am worried about using these heavy duty drugs, but my quality of life is so poor, the drugs seem a preferable option.
I don't know if its best to be forewarned about any side effects, i think i will face them if they should arise.at the time.
I need to go into this with my positive head on.
