I was diagnosed with R/A in 2000. Like many of you I've had several different medications to try and control the pain, stiffness, and overall yuncky feeling. Some worked for a while then stopped others didn't work at all. I'm scheduled to start my first dose of Cimzia tomorrow. However, after reading your reviews I'm doubtful that I'll preceed with the injections. One thing you ... Show Full Comment

Other than that I'm good. I've be ... Show Full Comment
