Change of RA Medications

graphic about Cimzia

Will Cimzia be the key to getting my Rheumatoid Arthritis back in remission?

I have been off Methotrexate now for two weeks and will be switching from Enbrel to Cimzia in about two weeks. I am not complaining at the timing because this week is American Craft Beer week and Lloyd has the week planned.

I have not heard much about the Cimzia shot for Rheumatoid Arthritis. So I will be researching a little about it in the next two weeks. Are you on Cimzia or have you ever taken Cimzia for Rheumatoid Arthritis? How well did it work for you? What type of side effects did you have while taking Cimzia?

I will be getting another Vectra DA blood test when I go back to Dr. Forouzesh’s office at the end of May. We will use the results to see if Methotrexate was helping or not. Then have it to compare after the change to Cimzia, so it should be interesting. I am ready to try something new and I hope that it gives me the relief that Enbrel and Arava gave me for a couple years. I really look forward to getting to workout daily again and be able to carry my own bags again.

Biotinidase Deficiency Not RA

Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dec 2003 because of joint pain and fatigue. Found out on July 19, 2013 that I really was profoundly low on Vitamin B7 because of a rare disease called Biotinidase Deficiency. When I found out I was very weak, hardly could get out of bed, could not turn my head without getting light headed, dragging my feet when I tried to walk, struggled to breath daily for years and was having many many other issues. From the first 24 hours of taking Biotin my symptoms started to disappear and my body started getting stronger again.
