Has Anyone Tried Simponi Aria?

Has Anyone Tried Simponi Aria?

My rheumatologist suggested I start Simponi Aria, an infusion. I have not yet seen this biologic mentioned here and wonder if anyone has tried it.

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?

I have to agree....I have not been able to manage my chronic fatigue regardless of all the ways I have tried. I am fatigued every day of my life and drag myself out of bed each and every day to work… read more

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.

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.

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

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

Who Has The Hla-b27 Gene? Do You Have AS?

Who Has The Hla-b27 Gene? Do You Have AS?

I ask this b/c I have the gene, but my rheumatologist diagnosed me w/ spondyloarthropathy. I have lymphatic colitis, iritis (off/on for years), sacroilitis, and my right hip is bone on bone, so I am having hip replacement in May. Plus my ortho surgeon told me I have lots of arthritis in my back. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Has Anyone Tried Simponi Aria Yet?

Has Anyone Tried Simponi Aria Yet?

I am waiting on the approval process for this. I've researched it so much and my doctor and I believe it is the right way for me to go due to anxiety with the Humira pen. I have been on Celebrex for the past year and I am in pain everyday and so fatigued. If anyone knows more about the Simponi Aria I would love to know your thoughts.

Anyone Switch From Humira To Cosentyx?

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
