I started on Benepali in mid June ,14 wks ago & very soon felt a real improvement but for the last 3 wks my right wrist has been very swollen & painful. In the past the joint pain has been more spread around & all over the place but this just feels very stuck, making my elbow and shoulder hurt too. I saw a rheumatology physio the other day who was standing in for the rheumatologist. He said it's either a flare which will go away or the drugs not working...time will tell.
How much time though? I could have a steroid injection to get me through the pain now or wait a bit to try & find out whether my wrist will calm down.
I am hoping it is a flare because from what I gather on the forum Benepali is the mildest of the biologics so it would be good not to have to change..
Any advice would be great. I am confused & despondent.
