Subject: pain ahhhh and question for OA sufferers

hi all hope you are all well. x

has the title says i am in so much pain and more joints than before. i have just started cimzia and had nothing for 6 weeks so was expecting lots more pain. pain has been increasing from then but i woke up monday stiff as a board and taking about 1 1/2 hours for it to stop.

my main problem at the moment is that i have hip pain i do you it to lean on as i have a limp because my right knee hurts so bad.

my question is with oa do you get pain in your groin, outside hip and down your leg?
this is what i am experiencing and its so bad.
(never had this before)!!
OR is it me just thinking the worse? just worrying that i could be getting OA as well as RA.
anyone help please xx

Hi Davina, Sorry to hear that you are in so much pain, i know how you feel. I have RA and have recently started enbrel, i was getting terrible pain along the top of my legs and when i mentioned this at the hospital i was told that is was coming from my hips, it's not so bad now but it was agony trying to get out of bed etc. I don't have OA and i know it's not so common to get RA on the hips but i would think if you have RA then perhaps it is coming from that and when your medication starts taking effect it should settle, hope you feel better soon. take care xx

Hi Davina, with OA you can get pain in any joint that is affected. Do you think your pain may be due to your limp?? I have a limp that gives me pain in my knee, but there is no oa in that knee. How my rhumy guy explained it to me it is reffered pain caused by extra pressure due to limping all the time.
Davina, try not to worry too much have a word with your Dr or nurse.
Take Care hope the pain subsides soon xx

Hi bsk thank you I.hope so to, how are you finding enbral after cimzia?
Hi Marlene again I do hope its to do with the limp but spoke to my gp and going to see him next week. Thank god he was a rheumy nurse so he is great to have as a gp. He said he may send me for an x ray to see if any damage and he said it doesn't sound good from what I have explained but qe will see.
