Now We Are After All On The Same Wave

Just back from Respiratory consultation and they have agreed for me to start Biological treatment because of my RA, As it so happened I was in so much pain this morning I could not do simple breathing tests and it made their decision easier and they highlighted the severe risks and possible Lung infections but have stressed the my Lungs will be monitored at all times at the start hopefully it won't be long just waiting on a phone call.

  • Hi Mattcass,

    Great news that you have been offered the Biologic treatment. NRAS has a publication on biologics which you can download or request by post here: or the NRAS Helpline team also have lots of information on the individual Biologic drugs once your team have chosen the right one for you.

    Wishing you all the best for your new treatment.
