Got a booklet with breathing excercsises and what to do if I think I'm starting an infection,my physio will be a very nice young man called Tom who actually went to the consultant to ask what do I do about humira injections should I get an infection we were told I could carry on with them,my rheumatologist is aware of my diagnosis ,I have to go back in 3 months time but I can call them if I need to.Oh and make sure I have bloods done every 3 months.

Please forgive any spelling mistakes I have some how turned spell checker off.Mig

    Excellent. And well done, Tom, for not being afraid to ask. Such people give me confidence.

    Breathing used to be so simple, didn't it?

    Glad the appointment went well, with the physio taking time to go that extra mile and make sure all bases were covered. :) XX Aidan

    It sounds as though you have had some good advice there - wasn't he a thorough young man? I suspect you have taught him something too, if he meets another auto-immune he will know what to advise.

    If my breathing is up the spout due to pollens etc. I carry on as usual with the humira and inhalers but if I have an infection I miss a humira dose and always have done on the advice of my hospital. Keep up the handwashing! DD
