Subject: just done my 1st cimzia injection

Hi all hope you are well and not having any nasty flares.
As the title says I just did my 1st injection for cimzia. I was so scared and I wanted to do both them but could only do the 2nd which I was disappointed about. I feel a little relieved that its over and not got to do it again for 2 weeks.

My question is side effects. Since doing it I have got a headache and its getting worse like a migraine on side of head and sickness feeling do others get this?

I didn't get side effects like that Davina, I think I did feel tired the day of the injection though.

Re: post further down, saw a chest consultant this week - got to have antibiotics in the house for when I get chest infections and he is going to keep me under his care. Fingers crossed I won't need them!

hi all thanks for your kind words and info.

hi bsk have you started enbrel yet? i so feel for you hon with all your infections, i hope you stop getting so many soon.

hi kim i do feel a little better without the headaches but very early days yet so well see, hope it helps you, i was on enbrel so i know what its like to be on another anti-ntf. just make sure you have at least 2 weeks apart from cimzia.
thanks again xx

Hi Davina, I hope you are starting to feel a bit better, it may take a bit of time for your body to get used to it and then hopefully you will feel better, i started on enbrel a couple of weeks ago and was told to take paracetemal if i got a headache, so i'm guessing that it must be a common side effect with anti-tnf's. take care. x
