I have ha RA for 35years and have had nearly every medication known to man, unfortunately I am one of these RA sufferers who have bad reactions to most drugs. I wait 3months for it to kick in and then find it doesn't work when I actually find one that does whoopee! its a great feeling back to nearly normal life for a while. At the moment I am waiting for Xeljanz to work and am on prednisolone which I hate (it blows me up like a balloon) but heh hoh I'd rather have that than the pain.
I am getting a lot of pain in my right arm and hand which includes pins and needles and numbness which I haven't had before anyone out there with similar symptoms and what do you do about it?
I also have a prolapse causing bladder incontinence for which I am waiting for an op and bowel incontinence the prolapse op will supposedly fix.
I have an all on Wednesday to see rheumatoid and have pre-op so will keep you updated on my progress.
Keep your fingers or whatever crossed for me! Sorry to bore you with all this but most people don't really want to know.
