Hello and welcome from me too. I'm another long-term 'RAer'. (Are there any short-term ones I'd quite like that )
I've never done biologics. Once DMARDS finally arrived in my life I found a combination of methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine did a good job. Mod Ellen, as usual, gives excellent advice. I'd just temper it with a word of caution in that those for whom all is going well rarely bother with sites such as ours so we are weighted in favour of those who are not doing so great which can make the overall picture seem gloomier than it is. One thing is obvious, though ie we are all different. We react differently to meds and one person's 'meat' is another's 'poison'.
I hope your biologic works well and long for you.
Hello, I have psoriatic arthritis plus OA and am also on the meth/imraldi combo. I have done three imraldi injections so far and, despite my best intentions not to feel any different, I am and not in a good way. I was lucky enough to see my consultant when I rang my Helpline (who immediately booked me in for an urgent appointment) and she immediately said I would be transferred back to humira but that will take some time to happen. I have a thread about it on the Living with Arthritis board on here but I cannot recall its name!
I hope you find the forum to be of interest, we all get it because we've all got it. DD
