(((((((((((hugs 4 Della))))))) im so sorry sweetie, I lsot my Mum and dad to cancer, they were my rock, I feel like an orphan as they were everything to me, plus this disease dont help does it...I seem to need my parents more than ever!... Del i dont know about the Infusions, altho might go on that one day,didnt u ask at the hosp when it Kicks in? one of the gals on here knows has infusions...maybe do a New topic on Infusions, and ask, remember also Del, u were at the hosp all day i assume, prob not been able to get around like u wld at home, to be honest, doesnt surprise me tht u ache... I had to take my 11 year old son to the hosp, went gp, and he thought my son has Appendicitis, waited 5 hours up there, sent him home, but he still has pain, so might have to go back yet, but the thing was, becos I had to stay with my son for hours, I began to ache, and severe fatigue set in, when the surgeon came around to check my son over, i was almost asleep LOLOL he prob thought what a crap mum I am ...lol...so I RECKON U NEED TO GIVE YOURSELF (oops caps soz) a few days to recover

Hi del sorry it didnt work for you, the same thing happened to me felt great for 24hrs, then just went back to normal, i had 3 lots 1 a wk, crap what a waste of time,have you had kenalog in your bum, i had loads of kenalog before the infusion, most of my joints as well, and they said the infusions didnt work because i got immune to them, but i had one this year and it worked kenalog that is,can you not try for the anti tnf, have you been on mex, sulf,etc,all the standard drugs, you have to fail all the standard drugs before you can get on the anti tnf,sad but true, it all comes down to money, ive had that much steroids i have to take calcium, because the steroid knackers your bones. take care. christine.x

Hi Christine, its tru thyey knacker the bones, and its terrible that people have to suffer for eyars(like I did) b4 u even get to Know that such meds exist!! also u get the Anti TNF Meds, u have to pass a score sheet, also my Biologics Nurse knows I have massive all over joint pain, but by the time I went for my check up and pass the score sheet, she cld barely get the number they need, think its 28 points or summat, cant remember, that was becos I wasnt in a flare up, anyway, i did pass, just, They do that becos the meds cost ten grand!, since ive been on Enbrel, its helped less flare ups, but I still cant work, that pisses me off, becos I wld be finacially better off if I cld work,...sorry rambling here...

anyway take care ok

Hi del sorry to here your still haveing bad, whats your inflam mark,ive been that bad where i couldnt make a fist, god the pain is terrible,when ive had to be admitted to hospital, and the rhumos doctors do their round, many a time ive wanted to say to them,i know you have studied R,A,and got a good paid job out of it, but if you had the pain for 1 day you may under stand what R,A, suffers go through,i just want to scream and say god the pain is terrible, but i cant, because they are at least on our side, even though they dont know the pain, hope you feel better soon. christine.x
