Morning and gentle hugs to all,

My name's Lynne and I've been living with Rheumatoid Arthritis for 10 years now.

My previous biologic treatment has stopped working after 7 years, 😫currently on nothing, waiting for a change in medication.

I'd love to hear of people's experience changing (only successful ones please, I have to hold on to some hope)

I'm sure I didn't have as much pain in as many places as I do now when I was first diagnosed!!!

    Hi Caryl,

    Thanks for your reply. I'll have a read of the link you sent.

    Hopefully there will be something that helps. At the minute I just need something to make the pain stop, I'd settle for half an hour pain free!

    Rheumy nurse has told me today My new prescription will be sent to the health care company, and I should hear something in 2 to 3 weeks. Fingers crossed 🤞
