Right now I have an iron plasma count of 2.8 and a CPR of 54. Bye bye Infliximab. I saw the Rheumy nurse a couple of days ago after finally overriding my severe phone phobia and calling the rheumy helpline. She thought maybe Enbrel but my Rheumy says Rituximab so more blood tests, more X rays, more MTX but only 2.5 this time (if I feel too bad on it I'll stop taking it, the world won't stop turning). The nurse says my veins may be rubbish because I'm so anaemic (I'm having trouble being canulated and having blood tests), I have to go on super duper iron girder pills for a while so hopefully they will work and make me feel human again. Maybe I should eat more chocolate too?
