Hi, I'm really struggling with lots of aspects of my RA, I have been really lucky with a relatively quick diagnosis because it was so bad at Christmas! I was in agony by the time I saw the consultant I was really bad and they gave me a steroid injection which was great and then another! I was off work for about 3 months but went back 5 weeks ago and was counting down the weeks for my next RA appointment as my hips, feet, hands neck were agony! Hospital were brilliant but they told me my RA is very aggressive and my CCP levels are 350, but I don't rely understand what that means?? Also I'm terrified about injecting myself with methotrexate! She gave me some info on biologics and said she needs me to be as bad in 5 weeks in order to put me on this!! I'm not sure what to make of that if its good or not, and if biologics are better long term, really overwhelmed by it all and feing very raw about this! Any advice greatly appreciated x
