I’m new here. Up and down journey with PSA
Hello, Diagnosed with PsA in 2020 after lots of tests etc. I have been suffering with long covid for 18 months plus excruciating pain in most of my joints. My arthritis is more enthesitis and have been on methotrexate and 3 different biologics. Had to come off all meds for full MRI of spine and pelvis at end of March as requested by rheumatologist. In past 4 weeks my pain symptoms have subsided, still stiff in the morning. But for months I wasn’t out of house due to pain, fatigue etc.
Still awaiting MRI results and have also let Rheumy know that my symptoms have got better.
The question I have, has anyone else had similar story? Has anybody came off medication and felt better? Or is it I’m not flaring now. So confused by it all.
Still Waiting on Rheumy discussing my case. They were talking about a new drug Rinvoq. They are now thinking of not giving me this because I feel better. I’m concerned as I don’t want to go back to the way I was which was no quality of life and not able to work or do anything.
I’m hoping to get back to work very soon and I do a challenging job. Don’t want to go back the way and struggle with my job.
Thanks for reading
