Hi I became ill with RA four years ago (aged 40) and have unsuccessfully been on MTX, HCQ, Leflunomide, Humira, Rituximab and Tocilizumab. Had to come off the tocilizumab at the beginning of July as was admitted to hospital with an inflammatory bowel disorder (still awaiting firm diagnosis) as if IBD does in fact exist, the toc can perforate the bowel further.
At the end of August I developed erythema nodosum which is extremely painful. It is mostly on my lower limbs, but has spread and then retreated from my upper legs and stomach. On some parts of my feet the EN seems to have ulcerated which I don't think is usual - am concerned I may have some sort of vasculitis - does this sound familiar to anyone?
Am currently taking prednisolene, tramadol and methotrexate (although that does not really help). Thanks Nina
