I'm glad my experience with Rituxan was able to provide you some information on this medication. As I said, it was working well for my lupus, but the side effects I was having, as well as the potential for more serious ones outweighed the good it was doing. I hope you feel better soon!
Hi! I have some questions for you? I got a blood test and was diagnosed with arthritis.All the woman in my family have Rheumotoid Arthritis.My symptoms are swelling in ankles,feet,calves,and upper thighs.I have been in extreme pain,its even hard to drive & wallk.I never had pain in my hands and inner forearms,this was a first.I can't take Plaquinol or ibuprofen,kidney issue from childhood.I have an appointment at the end of ths month.Any idea possible meds,I can take,other then the shot in the stomach once a week?I got some natural supplements and oil.Since my pain is so bad,I'm just taking meds to cover up the pain,until my appointment.Anything I need to know before going to see the specialist,questions to ask,meds I shouldn't take,etc...Any advice would be much appreciated.
