Hello everyone, I suffer from psoriatic and osteo- arthritis. I diagnosed back in 2001 when I was 52. Its been quite a journey with other medical complaints thrown in, it seems, at regular intervals just to keep me on my toes.
I started on etanercept quite early before it was officially approved by NICE after some time on traditional DMARDS. Unfortunately after some 12 years it became ineffective with the development of inflammation in the jaw. Ouch! Change of biological therapy this year to Cimzia has matters back under control fortunately but its lonely enduring a disease that so few know of and a wail and a groan is needed sometimes so here I am.
