... arthritis. My hands, wrists and finger joints actually hurt more. Don't know if it's the medicine or I'm just getting worse
I've been on Otezla now for 3 weeks and I'm pretty sure my pain and joints are much worse, or I've developed the worse flare I've had in over 15 years. I'm calling my rheumatologist tomorrow and I hate to give him the bad news. He was so sure this drug would actually "cure" me and he never has used that word with me before.
I am about 30 days now. Fairly new to arthritis. Psoriasis gone, most joint pain improved (I think) awakened last night with terrible headache and real bad joint pain... felt like it was coming in flashes... thought, maybe allergic response. I took advil went back to bed (what else can you do) awoke hours later pain gone. Still trying to work through head aches, several a day and diahrea which is improving somewhat. Everything back to normal this afternoon.
