Comment:
I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 9 years. I have been on many drugs that my system over time has made ineffective. This will be my 3rd month on Cimzia. I have seen good control of the RA, but the shots are extremely painful, very burning. I am used to pain, but this is terrible.

I had been on Enbrel for 5 years and I have not had any allergies to medication before. I have had a ... Show Full Comment
