I am going to be put on biologics. Not sure which one yet, depends on the insurance (I live in Canada). I'm really scared guys. I never took Tylenol for a headache before I was diagnosed a year ago. I was quite ill on mtx pills, then tried injections. Same. My current medication, Arava + Vimovo, hasn't really done anything other than five me violent diarrhea. About 8 months ago I started going to the gym again. I wanted my life back. And being 31 and having to use a cane was just not jiving with me. Saw some improvement, but over the last couple months I've been going downhill again. Had a bout with costochodritis that sent me to the hospital in a panic. It feels like a heart attack.
So now I'm kind of back where I started a year ago. Hobbling around, moody, depressed and in pain. I groom dogs, so I kind of need my hands to work and the strength to lift a dog. And though I can sit down to from small dogs, it makes doing a large breed almost impossible.
Any success stories or advice about which biologic you've tried or are on?
Much love guys 😊
