I’m interested to hear off anyone with RA that’s found private medical healthcare at a reasonable cost and low deductibles ? (Long story below)
Diagnosed in 2011 and the first biological drug I started worked perfectly until recently (cimzia) I’m now in the process of changing drugs, but I’ve been left for 3 months and counting, in the biggest flare up I’ve ever had as cimzia no longer works I’m in a severe flare up with no drugs basically. I’m under nhs wales and the process is painfully slow. Now they’re pushing a brand new drug that barely anyone is on in the Uk I’m told I’d be the first in wales and I’m feeling extremely fed up and deflated.
I’m 30 years old, mother to a 20 month old and am a self employed worker, my partner works full time. I’m at a bit of a loss that it’s ok to leave someone in this way for so long and I’m struggling to cope since beginning of March - with my boy and work. I can barely drive my car, tend to my boy, I work but the following day I pay for it, dressing myself and general activities is excruciating - sufferers will understand
So my question is can you get reasonable private cover because I’m absolutely sick of this slow treatment from the nhs
Anyone heard of the drug Kevzarra - this is the drug im being advised I need to swop too (against my request for a different one)
Thanks any help is appreciated
