I have been living with Rheumatoid Arthritis for 15 years. I have been on countless mediations to try to combat the problem. When I was first diagnosed, my Rheumatologist put me on Methotrexate and Prednisone (on and off when it flared). The Methtrexate stopped working and we started biologics. I have been on Humira, Enbrel, Oriencia, Remiciade and have had to discontinue use due to a variety of reasons. About a year into the biologics my liver enzymes started rising and they have not been normal for about 2 years. My gastroenterologist performed a liver biopsy and believes that all my symptoms are pointing to an autoimmune liver disease. Within this time span I also found out that I have Glaucoma, the optometrist thinks it is due to the prednisone. I am supposed to start on Simponi once my liver enzymes go down. Has anyone experienced Glaucoma or autoimmune liver diseases or liver problems with RA medications? If so, how are you treating it?
I’m feeling overwhelmed and anxious not quite sure where to turn. Looking for advice or feedback.
