Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone might have some Cimzia experiences to share please?
After much waiting I finally started cimzia on Wednesday afternoon at 5pm this week. It was the loading dose, 2 injections ...boy they seem much bigger than metoject!! Anyway, all went well with self injecting. I was quite tired in the evening and went to bed early. Got up yesterday morning completely exhausted and a little more pain than normal. It felt a slightly different tired to my normal fatigue, sorry hard to describe. Anyway, I had a very lazy day and evening, still completely shattered so didn't want to push it.
Today I've got up initially feeling a bit brighter. Now, again, totally exhausted, more pain and starting to really get those fluey aches ..I know you all know what I mean and boy do I hate them!! Anyway, whilst I anticipated there may be possible side affects, this isn't what I expected as it seems to be a worsening of symptoms. I'm not saying I expected it to work this quickly either as I know I've got to be patient and it can take a little while to work. Anyone else had similar or can offer any advice etc please?
Thanks Rosie x
