I started a new class of treatments for my RA at the first of this month. I am now trying Actemra infusions and I am cautiously optimistic that they may work for me.
It will simply take time to verify that it will or will not work. I always feel best in the fall and have less pain and aches during this time due to the mild temps and mostly dry climate where we live..
I have felt good since taking the first infusion up until this past weekend. Over the weekend I did a ton of yard work and got less rest than I normally do plus we had rain and storms all day Sunday.
I go in next Tuesday for my second infusion. It will be normal strength for the infusions. My first treatment was half strength. For now I'm just hanging on and hoping the Actemra works for a while.
