Hello everybody this is my first post here. I was diagnosed with RA in July last year. I already had osteo arthritis but when RA started completely different. I was referred to a specialist who quickly put me on methotrexate and hydrox. This worked well until January this year and started to flare. They then started me on Cimzia. I have had the three double doses of it and it has helped my hands work better although I still have stiffness but pleased I am able to do more with them. It has made no difference for my elbows and knees. They have told me it could take up to 12 weeks to benefit but wondered if it has helped my hands why not the others. Am I expecting too much too soon. As I am new to this any advice would be great.
Thanks in advance.
