Anyone Switch From Humira To Cosentyx?

My rheumatologist has switched me from Humira to Cosentyx but my first injection is not for 2 more days. I have a lot of pain in tendons, ligaments, enthesis, bursa, etc., and am wondering if others have seen much improvement if they, too, have switched? Ty

Taltz

Taltz

Does anyone have experience with Taltz? My doctor suggested that I try it to help with stiffness. Have been on Enbrel for about 2 years, it is great for pain, but does little for stiffness. Thank you

Was Diagnosed With AS At 61 After Having Many Joint Surgeries And Back Injections For Over 12 Years.

Was Diagnosed With AS At 61 After Having Many Joint Surgeries And Back Injections For Over 12 Years.

I even saw a rheumatologist 13 years ago but he did not do a HBL-27 test. Having more and more joint problems now with both shoulders, wrists and weakness and pain in fingers. After 3 knee replacements, I still have pain and swelling in my knees. I have not read much about AS and knee replacements or thumb replacements. Is that an unusual occurrence? Plus, I am very disappointed in the majority of doctors I have seen through the years who didn’t seem to have a clue about AS.

I don’t know about knee replacements but luckily that could be done. Not so easy to get a new spine right?

Pelvic floor exercises don't have to be done sitting down, you can do them standing if it's easier. The way to do it is to tighten your muscles inside as if you are stopping yourself from weeing. Try… read more

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

Medical Marijuana, Cbd Use

I am looking for alternative treatments for my AS. Will be on pure Medicare this next year and I’m very doubtful that I will be able to afford my humira. If you are using or have tried using either the full product or the cbd (without thc) I would love the feed back. Also if you know a source for good cbd, product descriptions are sketchy online. ( I can buy from 9 to 120 and they all read the same) thank you!

Does Anyone With AS Take Humaira.

Does Anyone With AS Take Humaira.

My husband is 69. The doctor recommended he get on Humaira. His blood work showed no inflammation. Is this normal in some with AS? It appears that Humaira is for inflammation. What alternatives are some of you on?
