I don't get a chance to post on here very often but I've been reading the blogs and questions and the information on this site is priceless. Plus, I'm in the US and find the differences between the health care system here and NHS very interesting and informative.
Anyway, I've been on Cimzia for four months now and the RA does feel better which is the good news. The not so good news is that I've had some other health problems the last two months that could be side effects from the Cimzia. Last month, I developed nose bleeds and actually coughed up blood. My GP put me on antibiotics and it seemed to clear up. This month, I had a horrible upper respiratory infection and fever. Once again, I was put on antibiotics and the infection cleared up. The thing is, I really never get "sick" like this. My Rheumy is out of town for two weeks so I have to wait til he gets back to discuss but was advised by other doctors in his practice to hold off on the Cimzia until he gets back. I'm wondering if anyone else has had problems like this. Thanks so much!
