I've been waiting for what seems like an eternity to start Cimzia - various delays and cancellations for one reason and another but third time lucky, the Healthcare at Home nurse arrived yesterday (and very lovely she was too). Although I'm used to injecting methotrexate, I had read a few things about Cimzia that had made me a little anxious. I did the two loading injections of Cimzia myself in my thigh and abdomen and am pleased to report no pain, no discomfort or burning, no swelling around the injection site and, touch wood, no side effects so far. Feeling relieved and hope to be feeling a lot better soon. Have a good weekend everyone, the sun is shining here!
