Jo, I know this may sounds silly but what did you mean by 'first loading dose?'. When I was taking humira, I just started with doing the first and then every 2 weeks there after, is yours different? Hope it helps more as the days pass.
My ankle/foot is very painful still (3 treatments in) I go and see the Rheumy in a weeks time so well see what he says, early days I know and it is making me feel better in every other aspect of the disease, but the foot is the most painful.
The heat today is a killer, 41C in the shade and 90k's wind speed, in fact my husband has just been called on a shout (RFS) so bad conditions today here. Friends in Roylston are o.k (did you hear about the fire yesterday?) they have 1,000 acre sheep farm and the fire went passed them, they stayed to fight it but are o.k. Their brothers farm next door got hit a little, but all's well thank god.
I had my appointment for a check up with the eye specialist again, more bad news, this time along with macular puckering (which thankfully hasn't got worse) I have calcium build up around the nerves in my eyes causing decreased sight going forward. I have to go back in 6 months (if not before) and if it gets any worse they will start treament of eye drops to try and clear it? I'm feed up with the lot of it, I truely am,
but I keep smiling
fooling everyone except my husband and boys. Another thing to add to the already growing list!
After that appointment I had to go straight to the next which was a breast screening due to the insistants of the specialist at the hospital and my rheumy. Apparently two breast cancers have been found by him while under treatment, so I guess we need to be safe don't we?
Well that's enough grumbling for today, tomorrows another day.......
So keep well the both of you, keep cool and safe and look after yourselves.
Till next time.
