If you had an alergic reaction to humira, What other medications would they possibly put you on?

If you had an alergic reaction to humira, What other medications would they possibly put you on?

Diagnosed in January 2015 with RA.. When she came on it was very fast and and progressive, I am on Methotrexate, Plaquenil, and prednisone... That didn't help much at all.. So then she started me on humira... worked amazing... I was into my 3 rd shot and had an allergic reaction. So now She is taking me off of it.. ok, but why can't I go on another biologic?

Link between RA and IUDs?

Link between RA and IUDs?

Today I stumbled across a scientific article from the American College of Rheumatology (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/11/1...) linking the use of IUDs and the risk to develop RA. I personally find this troubling due to the fact that I had my Mirena IUD inserted in Feb 2017, started feeling my first symptoms of joint pain 2 months later in April, and got my RA diagnosis in November of 2017. Just curious if any other women out there explored this as a potential factor.

Does anyone else feel like a whimp when they have to admit that they are just not having a good RA day?

Does anyone else feel like a whimp when they have to admit that they are just not having a good RA day?

I just feel as if family/friends/significant others don't understand when you say you aren't feeling good. I don't want to even admit out loud that I am in pain because I feel like they think I'm trying to get out of something or making excuses. Does anyone else ever feel this way?

I left on time today from work yea. Feel like employers are expecting more from us and less pay.
