I've had rheumatoid arthritis for over 5 years now in my hands, wrists, elbows and ankles and toes , and also have osteoarthritis in my hands and did have in both knees but have had both of them replaced thankfully as I suffered terribly with them. I am going to be going on biologics for my ra soon and wondered if anyone could tell me what it's like .

    I understand that you have rheumatoid arthritis affecting your joints as well as osteoarthritis in your hands. I also understand that you are about to go on biologics and wondering what they are like. You are certainly in the right place as many people on here take them so I am sure that they will share their support and experience with you. In the meantime have a look at the following which might be of interest.

    Hi @Loulabelle55

    Just wanted to say hello.

    If i was you I'd repost in the living with Arthritis section

    Title it Biologics advice or something like that or the name of the drug they are suggesting and the right people will see it.

    I hope you'll keep posting and let us know how you get on too.

    Take care
