NRAS

new here.....Hello

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site but not to RA, I've had Ankylosing Spondylitis for 7 years, and last year my wrists and hands started to swell and be be painful and i was diagnosed with RA last September. I've been on Humira for 3 years and i must say it work wonders. I had a knee op 2 weeks ago, as i had a displaced knee and a twisted ACL (no idea how i managed to do that) so i'm still recovering from that, I had to come of the humira for a month before and was able to start it again last night, (thank goodness). I help out at the local NRAS group, running stalls at fetes etc. it's hard work but very enjoyable. Not sure what else to say really. looking forward to getting to know people on here and i'm sure i will visit you all everyday.

Hello Aston

Like you I am an AS sufferer and had it for over 30 years. I don't have RA at least I don't think so. Not due to see my consultant until June. I was on Humiera but within a few weeks it gave me a rash so had to come off it. Now on Embrel which is great for your joints. Not much in the way of side affects; just an odd spot that gets itchy.

I came across this site several weeks ago and its very good with lots of information from patient experiences and drugs.

Regards

Jezza
