Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Do all rheumatoid arthritis drugs cause shortness of breath or panic?
Took methotrexate from 2007 until 2011 and caused shortness of breath. Switched to Humira, better on pain and then Enbrel. All caused shortness of breath and was hospitalized. I have lung damage and on oxygen 24/7. Taking infusion therapy, but get severe panic attacks. Can't tolerate the pain of RA, but medications side affects are even worse.
- Orencia and bladder infections. i have never had a real bladder infection, i have ic, but no infection. sine starting the orenica 3 shots, does orencia cause infections of the bladder? (1 answer)
I have had 3 injections of Orencia, the first one flared up my bladder, 3 shots later and now it feels like it is a sinus infection, can orencia cause this? I have never had one before.
- Can someone develope myasthenia gravis from botox injections for migraines if they also have fibromyalgia? (2 answers)
i have multiple auto immune issues and have had chronic migraines for many years. the doctor decided that botox was my last chance to help these headaches. i started having symptoms of myasthenia gravis after the second round of botox. my head became so hard to hold up and straight. swallowing problems and drooping eyelids came next. extreamly weak and tired muscles and difficulty chewing. i have been told that if you already have a neuromuscular disorder like fibro you shouldnt take botox. does anyone know about this?
- Has anyone developed myastenia gravis after botox for migraines
I have many auto immune problems and severe migraines. the doctors have tried everything that my medications and allergies will allow. then we tried botox. by the second set of injections i was having trouble holding my head up and swallowing. he avoided the paraspinal area after that but continued with injections. the botox greatly improved my headaches but drastically changed other areas. i can no longer dive due to double vision, i can hold my head up and still for only short window, my eyelids roop and one eye will stray off and come back in line. i have a difficult time eating really solid food. i of course stopped botox and got another neurologist. she said i have myasthenia gravis triggered by botox.
- I am 49 yr. old female, severe progressive rheumatoid arthritis an have been on enbrel, mehtotrexate and now orencia for 4+ yrs i have possible skin cancer how common is this?.
I am worried because the Dr. found a spot on my stomach the size of a pea. She strongly believes its Basal Cell Carcinoma, but, my lymph nodes are all swollen and very painful under my neck and arm they just burn. I was wondering if this could possibly be Lymphoma Skin Cancer? And if so is there a like to RA? or Orencia use?
