I am just about recovered from the biggest flare up I have had since being diagnosed with RA seven years ago. My meds have not kept me as comfortable since having to stop Enbrel in 2016 through being diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news is that my Rheumatology doctor is going to start me on Abatacept in the next week or so. (Any info from anyone on Abatacept most welcome). Anyway, I’m going through all the usual tests in preparation to start this medication, as we do. And a chest X-ray has revealed inflammation in my lungs ? I presume it is the same inflammation as has been in my joints over past weeks. My Rheumatology doctor is on holiday at the moment and the clinical nurse has said that he will explain everything when he comes back. In the meantime I thought someone here might be able to enlighten me a bit !!!
Kind regards to all and some nice hugs for those of you who are suffering right now.
