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
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?
