Thankfully my rheumy has failed this drug, but I'm wondering if the side effects are now permanent
I started immediately with really severe headaches, my pain increased each time I took it and also feels different, like it's not only in my joints anymore it's in my tendons muscles and cartilage ( even my nose!!), I have soft bumps appear on my wrists and hard lumps on underside of joints, my throat is permanently swollen and the pain in the soles of my feet is awful and to top it off I have… read more

They found a growth on my mitral valve that caused me to have to have open heart surgery for repair The report came back from pathology as being caused by RA.
