I am 55 and have been dx since 35. This is the first treatment that has even started working. Also on Arava. First three days have headache, extreme fatigue then slowly feel better. I have had three treatments. Nothing else has worked. i even have progressive damage in hands and feet during Remicade. Hope things will be looking up.
