I’m new. And I’m despairing. I’ve been ill for 19 days. 18 of those also includes a horrible rash. Started on my left, a week later my right side erupted too. They look like hives and itch horribly. In my sleep I’ve been scratching. Wake up to a wet neck from fluid of the blister? Although it’s one continuous blister I guess. Been on orencia infusions for 18 mos. the illness and rash followed a Christmas party. I was afraid to go to because every time I socialize I catch an infection. Lethargic, dry cough, mucous cough, chills and this god awful rash that makes me want to perform my own surgery. Got into a emergency dermatology appt. for tomorrow. For now, has anyone else experienced these fluid filled hives? I don’t want to sound vain but thank god my hair covers the rash thing. It’s so awful. It is severely interfering with my sleep because it itches so badly. Anyone experience something similar? Worst Christmas and New Year. And yup, I’m feeling sorry for myself. My RA is actually under control and I am considered “low disease activity” as a result of orencia. CRP score is a 6. Hence the “almost cured” but won’t be if I stop my orencia. TIA. Gentle Hugs.
