... has improved slightly but nothing significant. My great concern is my swollen lymph nodes that are behind my ear... Towards my jaw. There are a cluster of them swollen. My lower back aches more than ever and I just don't feel right. I had a Cbc drawn and everything is normal. Why would my lymph nodes swell if there is no infection. I'm on a course of abx just incase but three days in not a single change in Size. I have frequent headashes and I'm not able to sleep well.Obviously reading more into the drug has been panicked. I'm usually pretty healthy... And never had these nodes swell not even when sick. I'm not sure if these are related to the drug or if it's something else
Hi ChristineM84, I have RA with psoriasis and have been taking Cimzia for about 8 months. The first 6 weeks I took it I had some bad side effects, but different froms yours. I primarily had colon problems, headaches & dizziness. After about 3 months, though, I started to really feel a lot better and have found Cimzia to be the most beneficial biologic drug I've taken. I previously tried Humira (no help) and Enbrel (some benefit). So, hopefully soon, you will start to experience the benefits of Cimzia and the side effects will subside. If not, you should see your doctor. Take care, MDM1957
