I have been suffering with some sort of inflammatory RA for 18 months since leaving a very active job and leading a very busy lifestyle. This has slowed me down completely and have been in pain particularly both wrists and knees. I was on steroids for a year and came off them in November when I had an op on one of my wrists that hasn't helped at all. I saw my consultant 6 weeks ago who agreed the combination drugs of MTX, Sulphasalazine and hydroxichloroquine together with painkillers were not working. She scored me any told me I needed anti TNF treatment which I agreed to. I have waited 6 weeks and now been told it could be 3 to 6 months. Any views on this please as I am at the end of my tether and considering hitting the steroids again to get some pain relief but don't really want to start that cycle again. Any advice would be welcomed.
