Hi, I have been on Xeljanz for 15 weeks at the higher dose: 10mg, twice a day.
My UC symptoms have all but disappeared. After 7 years on Remicade, that medication stopped working. It's been a game changer. Quality of life is great.
Now, for the flip side. Two weeks ago, I starting developing acute muscle pain and weakness from the hips down to the legs. I had to stop playing squash and pickleball. I had an xray of my left hip and everything is normal. I know that this is anecdotal but I suspect that Xeljanz may cause this muscle pain and weakness.
Anyone out there who has experienced something similar?[img][/img]
