hi lynnr i was the same as you with the same dmards and still on plaqeneil and methatrexate with enbrel.
for me i was assessed for anti-tnf after sulfa gave me bad side effects that i couldn't deal with everyday. it does take a while about 2/3 months to get you started on to them and hopefully they will work.
for me enbral as helped a little with all day pain and morning stiffness but still not great so deciding next step of infusions.
i hope your rheumy appintment isn't to long away so you can get some help. take care. x

it anit-TNF's arnt mentioned at your next appointment with the rummy ask! in my county 2 or 3 DMARDs have to have been tried before you can be considerd for the tnfs so it could be you would be ideal for them.

If you dont have a rummy appointment for a while get onto your nursing team and say how hard you are finding it and maby they could get an appointment earlier for you.

good look! xxx
