I developed RA overnight 18 months ago and metatrexate did not work. On Humira for past 10 weeks but do not see much change. Rheumy says it's beginning to work as bloods good and inflamation down. He said the same about metatrexate until a scan showed inflamation in all my joints and a lot of deteriation. Anyway for the past year I have become very anxious and depressed . I have been refered to a psychiatrist and waiting for appointment. This is the first time in my life I have experienced mental health difficulties I am 59. Has anyone else experienced this as I find this even more frightening than the R A.
Does medication help?
