Go to Doc tomorrow talk about new meds. She had mentioned before maybe trying biologics. I’m terrified of the side effects I read. I know not everyone gets them but I’m pretty sensitive to mess though. However none of the meds so far have really worked. I have so many things I want to do in life that I need to be functional and mobile. I dont need to be nauseous and dizzy, don’t need any more headaches, don’t want to have sore throats, I have bad sinus already. I can’t deal with… read more
I know how scary it is.... Especially when you have to sign a waver stating death could happen.... Humeria was hard on me for the first 2 months.... Sores in mouth,body hurt but then it got OK on the 3 month....i was on it for 4 yrs then it stopped working.... Now on Embro and very little side effects.... All in all I'd do it again because does work
💖thank you. I hope you continue to do well. I definitely need to ask about hair loss. My meds are already doing that. 😩 We shall see what my insurance says. Thank you so much. I noticed everyone for the most part said biologics help. If I can get it covered and my cost isn’t bad then maybe I’ll give it a try
Of course talk about infusion RA is a nasty war in your body try to slow it down then you win
When I was put on biologics I was scared too. I was bed ridden and wanted to do anything to walk again. I had to switch 3 times but finally found one that my body responded well too. It takes months to know for sure, but if you have any side effects, you will know e as early on. Let your Provider know immediately if you h as very any. It was not an option for me to NOT try it. I can do just about anything a normal person can and it was worth any side effects to find one that would help me have less pain and more mobility. It's a personal choice. But if you get a cold, virus, uti, or anything b/c your immune system is weak to non existant... get to a doctor fast to stay on top of symptoms. It takes me 3-4 times longer to fight off any colds or viruses. But I stay vigilant on my health. You are your best advocate!
