Hi guys, had my first 3 month review on benepali yesterday. Saw the nurse and she couldn't believe how much better I looked!!! So my pain/inflammatory score was right at the top end in January and tbh looking back I think I was being quite conservative, so now it's way way down! The morning stiffness I'm having the nurse feels I may be left with this but said it's not uncommon for the drug to take 6 months for full benefit.
She was a wee bit concerned that I'm doing too much!!! But I'm pretty good at pacing myself and hey if I need a wee snooze in the afternoon...well I don't resist!!!
So I will keep up with my swimming...excellent for all your joints so if you can try and go guys it will do you good...honest!!!
So anyone out there who is terrified as I was of starting benepali, please don't be...quite honestly I am actually starting to feel like 'me'
Hoping this continues......and wishing you well x
