I had my first infusion on Tuesday 5th. I thought I'd report on how I feel after a few days. I think the only way to describe it is that a spring in my body which was very tightly wound has released it's pressure. I'm feeling so much better. I can now lie in bed on either shoulder without being in agony and can turn over in bed more freely.
I still wake up with stiff joints but it all seems less painful. There are still symptoms of RA there but they are much improved.
I am taking it easy and trying not to get over excited in feeling a little better but feel there now may be some hope at the end of a very long tunnel. I thought it was supposed to take some time before the Rituximab started working.
