Took my 4th injection of orencia Tuesday. Yesterday hurt all over and noticed my knee was swollen up like a baseball and bright red. this morning both knees are that way and I hurt from my neck down. Also been having terrible lower back pain and am exhausted. Supposed to start infusions of orencia next week and am thinking this may not be a good idea. Have a call in to my rheumy but wondering if anyone has had similar experience. I can't go through this for another two months (she said it takes at least 3 months to work).
