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

I have tried Simponi and Cosentyx. Humira is seeming to make me feel better but it's only been a week and a half.

Is There Anyone That Take A Biologic But Still Have Lots Of Fatigue?

Is There Anyone That Take A Biologic But Still Have Lots Of Fatigue?

I am on my second biologic. I have tried Humira and 6 most later my body attacked the meds. I am now on Cosetyx. It's been about 8 weeks and I still feel so fatigued. I was thinking depression and is it still this disease?

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?

I just started Humira 2 weeks ago and it's been a miracle. I was on Cosentyx before.

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?

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!

Some people cannot digest edibles or CBS's for the effect, like everything it depends on your body...with that said, smoking pot helps keep the sanity in check.
