Hi everyone. I am new on the site. Was diagnosed 2+ years ago with RA, quite a lot of joints damaged, had lower back fusion, new knee but pain at moment is predominately hands, elbows, shoulders, jaw etc. Had to come off methotrexate just before Christmas as had very low wbc. If yesterday bloods are better level they will put me on cimzia, I am still on hydroxychloroquine. Would love to hear other peoples experiences of cimzia.

Hiya sandyf. I'm sorry I don't have any experience of anti tnf's I'm afraid, I'm fortunately controlled on MTX but just wanted to drop by to welcome you here. Hopefully someone on Cimzia will come along to share their experiences with you before too long. :)


Thank you nomoreheels. I appreciate it.



Just want to welcome you to this site, a rich resource of knowledge.

Sorry can not comment on CimZia but hopping you find your answers.


Thank you. So far the site looks great, hopefully I won't feel so alone with ra.
