I've been on humeria for 2 months. I no longer get morning stiffness and fatigue has decreased. So generally I feel a lot better bring on it. But my joint pain is still there. Both shoulders, left elbow but the worst is my right wrist, it is that painful it feels like it is broken ( but it's not) I still get severe pain and my joints lock. I'm not sure if it's the humeria not working fully or I need to give it longer, which I will be doing or if there is permanent damage in these joints because they were inflamed for over a year while I was trying DMARDs.
I took VR from work as I feel I would have been sacked due to time off the hospital apps etc. I am having trouble getting a 'unfit for work' certificate from my GP, he said I have been working with the condition so he can't sign me off. I explained to him I struggled every day to get through the day with extreme pain, stiffness and tiredness. I gave up my job that I loved for 16 years due to my RA. ( it wasn't an easy decision ) Although I feel a bit better now, I would prefer to get myself at fit as possible before working again and find out if this is permanent damage in my joints. I only need a little time before I find out as my next hospital app is 1st oct. I will ask for X-rays to see what's going on with my joints. I can't even open a door with my right hand, I need to use both hands - how embarrassing will that be for me when going for interviews.
Is there anyone on here who is on humeria who has similar results as me. 😃
