hi , im new on here i have known i have ra for a few years now but i also have cystic fibrosis , osteo penia, gastro osphagal reflux disease, cf/rheumatoid arthritis ,and some minor renal problems. after trying sulfasalzim ,neproxin , indameticin , hydroxchloriquin , 12.5 mg methotrexate and running out of options . because i have chronic lung disease caused by my cf and a body that has enough trouble fighting infection without lowering my white cell count to combate the arthritis , my cf team and my reumatoligist have decided to try me on embrel . I am really hoping this will work for me , i am in constant pain with my joints and this is affecting all the other areas of my health because it causing me to not move as much as i need to . i am a mum of 3 boys and really push my self to stay on top of everything even when it feels iimpossible some times. I had alot of trouble getting the clerance for embrel because of the other health issuse and drs not being sure of what catagory to put ra in as there is a link with cf arthropathy too but i show signs of both. my main concern with this is food safty while on it and if anybody coud point me in a direction to find out what i can and cant safly eat . thanks xx hi wasn't sure how to answer in a way you would all see so am writing here :).thank you all for your responses and kind words they have all been helpful . It is also nice sometimes know you are not alone . My husband is wonderful but dosnt always understand how im feeling or know what to say or do to help . So to know that you are all here with me is a comfort. Thankyou all so much .
