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
