Hi there, I've been diagnosed for around 10 years and have managed very well for most of that time, I've gone through various treatments and am now on methotrexate and leflunomide, I've just been taken off Humira which stopped working for me, and have started Rituximab. I've been getting worse and worse for the last six months and now have been signed off work. I am told I'm anemic and they want to do an endoscopy in case I'm bleeding in my stomach - I'm really scared of this and wonder if it's really necessary - I've taken naproxen for a lot of years which I know can affect the gut, but think I could just be treated for anemia and suspected ulcer without having to go through the proceedure, which on top of the join pain, lack of sleep and general distress, is frankly the last thing I need right now - any light at the end of the tunnel stories to help me out?
