Hi everyone, hope you are not in too much pain. I have been having a really tough time since just after Christmas when I went down with a chest infection. I had asthma as a child and then nothing til about 5 years ago which was when the RA was diagnosed. This was followed by an infected place on my leg, I then had an infection in a tooth which was followed by another chest infection which is taking an age to clear. I have had loads of antibiotics and I am still on 30mg of prednisone. I was prescribed Benepali end of November but have only managed 5 injections. RA Nurse has advised I leave them off until I have had a CT scan on my chest. Both RA Nurse and GP think the chest problems are to do with the Rheumatoid. Anyone had these problems and could give advice would be appreciated.
