Why so fed up? Let's hope it's the one that really helps you. I won't be getting biologics as I keep getting UTI and chest infections. Hugs

Good luck with Humira. Make sure you notify your doctor at the earliest sign of a complication or weird side effect.

Been on Humira for 10 weeks now Along with mtrexate and sulfasalazine .Had bad headache for 3 days after first shot but since then no apparent side effects and inflammation reduced significantly. Feel I’m am getting significant benefit. Hope it works for you !!!

I’ve been on Benepali for 5 weeks feeling some benefit from it.

I’m on half the dose. I’m not sure if this was a mistake as my letter says twice weekly and trying to cover it up by saying see how it goes for 6 weeks then review.

Had an appointment last week had 3 doses at that point.

My DAS score remained high liaised with consultant for another 3 weeks.

I’m supposed to have my next appointment in 4 weeks but no date yet as it’s Christmas week when I’m due to be seen again.

Me too Deejojo... I'm currently on Enbrel. What are you currently on at the moment? I only started out with a tiny patch of psoriasis on my scalp. I now have it on my elbows. My consultant has said that Enbrel alone can usually cause this to happen. So people on Enbrel also tend to have methotrexate too. Due to me trying for a baby, I don't have this option. So he has referred me to a skin clinic in January that he runs along with another colleague of his. His said they will be able to change me onto humeria as they need a reason why. I was hoping to return to work as I've been off since March. I now don't know what the outcome with me in regards to side affects etc. Just when you think your starting to feel slightly human again it get snatched away. Enbrel has had some good affect but my kneees are still swollen and painful at times. It's a huge difference to being bed ridden though as I was before Enbrel. I spoke to you on here a while ago about PIP... how did that go in the end? I got awarded recently which was a huge relief. Although due to me being on ESA and employed as I've exhausted all my entitlement to SSP. I still have to pay for prescriprions and dental treatment. I hope humeria works well for you. x
