Had a hospital visit today; my RA still isn't under control (don't I know it!)
Metoject 20mls weekly, sulfasalazine 800mg/day isn't cutting it. I've not long come off yet another course of prednisolone and have been put on another month of it. It helps reduce some of the swelling but all of my joints are still very painful, all day every day.
I now have another appointment 11th November at a different hospital to discuss which anti-tnf would suit me. I had to have a blood test today to ensure I have antibodies to hep b and c and TB.
I don't know much about anti- tnf's and as such I feel inadequate to be having a discussion about which one to take!
I know you learned lot will know something about them: how often and how they are administered. What side-effects are possible etc.
H e l p!!
