Is Anyone Taking Cimzia And If So Have You Had Any Negative Side Effects?

Is Anyone Taking Cimzia And If So Have You Had Any Negative Side Effects?

I'm currently on celebrex but it doesn't do much for my extreme fatigue. However, some of the side effects for cimzia make me a little nervous. For example, one was that it lowers your immune system which mine already sucks. And I don't want it to affect my anemia. Any advice?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

I'm on cimzia too but it doesn't work the full four weeks for me. Usually by end of week two pain starts coming back on. By the end of week three, I feel pain all the time and feel like I got hit by a… read more

How Should I Respond To Someone, Who Compares My Spondylitis Pain With Their Normal Fatigue Or Pain And Says I Overthink My Pain?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

For me, sadly yes. It's one of the hallmarks of this disease I'm finding. Getting the inflammation under control helps as well as sticking to a regular sleep pattern if possible. Naps are a must. I've… read more

Nausea 🤢

Nausea 🤢

Anyone else who takes prescription NSAIDs daily find they’re getting bad nausea post-vax? I’ve had nausea ranging from mild to painful since the evening after my second dose (Monday). Maybe the medication is making a normal side effect worse?

A MySpondylitisTeam Member said:

Better now. I had the J&J 6 weeks ago. Probably having to go off the Methatrexate for 2 weeks before & after the shot increased my inflamation & fatigue. So only been back on it 2 weeks.

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

Leaves Of Absence And Communicating With Doctors

Leaves Of Absence And Communicating With Doctors

I am approaching the follow up date with my rheumatologist and am worried that due to lack of medical evidence that I won't be believed that I am still struggling with symptoms. My primary struggle is fatigue and moderate intermittent pain. I am staying active with house work but it wipes me out. I am concerned that if I go back to work too soon, I will be faced with the same struggles I had before, which is even a short 4 hour shift will expend the energy I have for the day. I am also a full… read more
