Had gained weight and lost weight and gained it back.
From this study (1 month ago):
Numerous other symptoms
Was diagnosed with SLE Lupus (18 months ago) in addition to Rheumatoid Arthritis (10 years ago) - in remission for approx. 2-3 years.
Have been receiving Actemra infusions for 3 years 4 months and have been given the options to:
a) remain on drug and endure current symptoms
b) change current RA treatment
c) take 'drug holiday' of 6 month from current treatment to see if 'lupus-like' symptoms improve (and risking RA remission status)
I must make a decision about ceasing or continuing current Actemra treatment
From this study (2 months ago):
Have had a hip replacement, through an accident...Also suffer with arthritis in my knee joints.... Do take exercise swimming and gym, but after taking Mirtazapine for 2 weeks, I now cannot walk a few yards, my legs have gone very stiff with tremendous pain when I walk, ok sitting down or lying in bed. Walking seems to ware my body down, and makes me feel warn down, so I stopped taking Mirtazapine for 3 days, I can now walk that much better...... Could this be a temporary measure? and maybe when I have been on the tablets longer this may right it's self, or should I see my doctor
