I am feeling a bit fed up, I am on cimzia and it has really helped but because it makes you prone to infections I have had to have antibiotics and steroids and each time I have had to stop the injections, I have had a sinus infection this time and a sore throat as well . I went to the Drs as you are told to do, and was told that they did not want to give me any antibiotics as I had had alot and would risk becoming resistant, I have asthma as well as type 1 diabetes. When I became ill 3 years ago I did not go to drs straight away the result was that I became so ill I had to be admitted to hospital be given oxygen and nebulizer I could not breath I was told I must go to drs when I got infection in future to be given treatment. The thing is I am afraid that I will be left wiithout help, I know it is a risk having antibiotics but I am in a catch 22 position It has really made me afraid. I don't want all these infections and wish I could just leave it and get better on my own, My rheaumatology drs tell me I must go to GP then a Dr at my surgery who I don't usually see tells me different,, has anyone else had this problem.? I am scared to start cimzia again but it has really helped me have a better quality of life! I think the only people who know how I am feeling are people with this soul destroying condition I am writing this a 5.15am as I have got some pain..
