    I have had RA for 37 years and have been on several biologics. I started taking Cimzia about 6 weeks ago. It may be helping some, I seem to have more energy and less pain; however, I am itching so much. I have an itchy rash on my leg and tingling all over. I'm a little afraid of taking another dose in a week. Wondering if anyone else has had the itching problem and what you did about it...
