... want to feel like me
I am looking up Abatacept. Okay it is another name for Orencia. My question is are you on it? Or asking about it? I have not taken Orencia, I was on Enbrel and it worked wonderfully, however, the one side effect of fungus patches on my toes got to be a big problem, so you cannot have any kind of athletes foot fungus.
Have you been put on Methotrexate and/or Plaquenil. There is life with RA and many wonderful options in todays world. GET WITH A RHEUMATOLOGIST.
Orencia has been a lifesaver for me. I have not noticed the side effects you mentioned in connection with this medication. That being said, my RA causes various degrees of physical impairment. When I was on methotrexate I would have a day of “brain fog”. Orencia Inproved the quality of my life. The pain lessened to the point that I could do my grocery shopping again. To be fair the negatives are frequent bouts of shingles or herpes, nail fungus and it takes a longer time to recover from colds.
