Hope you are all enjoying the bank holidays and of course the wedding.
Just had my appointment with the Rheumy which was brought forward due to swelling and pain in left knee. After drawing out excess fluid and giving me a steroid injection I have had some relief.
Having been on Enbrel for 6 years with great success, I found that it was possibly losing it`s effectiveness. I pleaded with them not to add methotrexate as I find it difficult to tolerate. Have enough problems without the nausea etc that it causes. Along with the Enbrel I have now been prescribed Hydroxychloroquine (I think it also has another name). I would be grateful if someone could tell me something about it, side effects etc. before I start it. My Rheum nurse tells me there are no side effects, I find that hard to believe. Hope someone can help me.
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!!
