    Occasionally I feel extra tired a day after doing my meth injection and that happens when it's a humira week too so yes, in a sense I do feel worse than usual but it passes. I have PsA and OA. DD

    Hi @gazrobbo

    Welcome from me too, thanks for clarifying what meds you were on, here's the infor we have on our website on yours

    What a shame that you have had to start another treatment, I hope this one works well for you.

    I notice you have been travelling along with one or more arthritises for over 18 months now, it would be great if you could visit our Living with Arthritis category

    to add your advice, support and encouragement.

    Take care

    Yvonne x
