Not sure how much I should say so I will just give you a brief review:
Wife, Mom, Grandma
Showed signs after my daughters birth
2 joints fused: wrist and upper foot
Heart calcified had a pericardectomy in 2001 at Mayo
Have tried almost every med, disease keeps progressing only med that helps is prednisone!
Waiting to be cleared for Cimzia & Methotrexate (that is how I found you, looking up people who uses Cimzia)
Just stopped Rituxan, was not working for me AT ALL! Disease progressed while being treated with it.
Feel like disease is winning for the last year, I have fought this thing for a long time, never felt this bad.
Fatigue is horrible, tendon under left heel is flairing up, OUCH! It is a new symptom. Right wrist so bad thinking about getting it fused.
Wondered if anyone had relief with Cimzia after Rituxan not helping. Also, wondering the cost of Cimzia with above average insurance?
I was athletic now I can do yoga but no impact exercise. Very depressed. Gaining weight.
Feel very lonely,that know one understands and I don't want to bore them with these issue's since you know everyone has arthritis (ha).
