Hi, Has Anyone Had To Deal With Tennis/golfers Elbow With RA? I Have Both Of Them In Both My Elbows.

Hi, Has Anyone Had To Deal With Tennis/golfers Elbow With RA? I Have Both Of Them In Both My Elbows.

It’s worsened with any pulling or lifting. My Dr suggested steroid injections in both of them. I suspect it’s from my RA not being well controlled with the Xeljanz I’m taking. It’s been worsening since I was taken off my Actemra infusions a year ago. I also have tendinitis in both of my feet and one of my Achilles’ tendons. Thanks.

Orencia

Orencia

Has anyone that has Orencia infusions deal with flushing and over the top sweating? just sitting in a chair in air conditioning and it completely overwhelms me.
It is definitely not “the changes” as sadly I had a complete hysterectomy at a young age.

I’ve only had one infusion of Orencia so far.. probably too soon for side effects. I’m praying there aren’t any.

My Dr. Started Me On Leflunomide 20 Mg. I

My Dr. Started Me On Leflunomide 20 Mg. I

I have started this new medication in addition to the 200mg. Plaquenil yesterday and today I have started to have pain in my jaw - on both sides of my face. Has anyone else been on this medication and if so, have you experienced any side effects ?

A myRAteam Member said:

It did after about 1/2 hour. I have not had that before and I know it is not dental, so wondered if it was medication related. Thank-you

Has Anyone Had Injections Of Cortisone In Their Feet For RA Pain?

Has Anyone Had Injections Of Cortisone In Their Feet For RA Pain?

My worst pain is in my feet, mainly where my toes meet the ball of my foot. It's throbbing pain and hurts every day. My RA doc says I can have the injections in my feet but am hesitant due to fear of pain. Anyone have any input on this? Thanks.

Oh and Nick I hope you don't think I was being insulting when I said you make me laugh. You're such a bright, sunny person. ❣️
