Dropping Things

Dropping Things

For the past few weeks I have found that I have been dropping things out of my hands. It isn’t just big or hot things, it is small, soft, cool, hot, any texture, size or temperature things. Could it be a side effect of new meds (Rinvoq) or something neurological?

Thank you.

Oh yes, I drop things constantly. Over the years I've changed over from glass and ceramics at my house to plastic, wood, and metal items because I got tired of cleaning up glass shards.

Anyone Try And On Rinvoq And Methotrexate?

Anyone Try And On Rinvoq And Methotrexate?

After the Covid shot I took a downturn due to missing methotrexate. My doctor wants me to try and Add Rinvoq. I take 8 methotrexate 5mg prednisone, and minocycline.

I have an overlap disease of rheumatoid, myositis, and lupus. Hoping Rinvoq will help and I can lower Metho dose. Anything I should be aware of?

A myRAteam Member said:

No lowering my Methotrexate. I’m not sure Rinvoq is helping me at all. 😟😟

Newly Approved RINVOQ

Newly Approved RINVOQ

Has anyone's rheumatologist suggested Rinvoq? I just saw my doctor last week and he mentioned this new drug that was just approved this year. He said I'd be an excellent canddiate (it's a JAK inhibitor, and TNF blockers don't work on me).

Anyone out there trying it out, or at least looking into it?

A myRAteam Member said:

I have not had any side effects from using Rinvoq for now over 7 mo the. No blood clots either.

Muscle Pain On Rinvoq?

Muscle Pain On Rinvoq?

I'm on my third week trialing Rinvoq and am having some nasty muscle pain. My calves are so sore that I'm really hobbling. I've been wearing good, supportive shoes, no unusual activity, and I drink plenty of water. The only new thing is the Rinvoq. I googled and muscle soreness was mentioned. Anyone else experience this, and if so how did you get rid of it??

A myRAteam Member said:

Hooray4RA, yes, absolutely! I've gone on all the websites for the medication I'm on that doesn't have a generic. Even my Eliquis has a discount card/program that has saved me considerably. I work in… read more

I am about to start Rinvoq this weekend. My Rheumatologist said Humira wasnt working. Does anyone have any thoughts on Rinvoq?

A myRAteam Member said:

I was on Humira and switched to rinvoq two weeks ago. So far so good but realistically it's too soon to tell. I'll let you know how it goes. Please do the same and we can compare notes.

Weird Side Effects Of Rinvoq?

Weird Side Effects Of Rinvoq?

I started taking Rinvoq last night. About two hours after the first dose I was so hot it was so uncomfortable. I stayed way too hot for about three hours. In the meantime, I started getting cramps in the arches of both feet and then charlie horses in both legs. Then my hands started cramping up really badly. This lasted a couple of hours. I did get somwhat nauseated, but it wasn't as bad as when I was on Enbrel or Orencia. Then, like a light switch, I was too tired to move and fell asleep for a… read more
