Hello my RA nurse suggested I ask on here if there is anyone who has been on this drug who could give me some information about their experience. I have tried all the other usual drugs but not had much benefit currently on Benepali for the past year but am in pain every day, perhaps I expected too much.
I am needle phobic and dread the idea of having a drip stuck in my arm. I am one of those with pale skin and deep veins so they never find it easy to extract my blood. i have had lots of bad experiences. I came out of the Edward Jenner Clinic last week with a lump and two puncture wounds, subsequent bruising only just fading. I am assuming finding a spot for the line wont be straightforward, so I am very nervous. Shaking in my boots is how I feel.
That is not my only concern I fear what will it do to me. Please believe me when I say I am trying to focus on the benefits this drug could bring in helping my RA. If anyone can ally my fears please let me know how it was it for you and how much benefit and or side effects if at all.
