Hi all, just an update, I'd posted last week about having to stop leflunomide. I had my rheumatology appointment this week, so, rheumatologist was fab, she could see the amount of pain I was in and my 23 affected joints. She's putting me forward to start the anti tnf biologic called certolizumab pegol. Anyone on it or been on it? I have to self inject it every two weeks. I got a depo injection, it's bliss, already my joints are less painful. No joy with my jaw yet though, it's still locked and very painful, I still can't chew cos my teeth are not lining up properly and my back teeth don't even touch each other. Rheumatologist said the jaw prob is due to all the inflammation in my body. My jaw is really freaking me out, I'm worried about that, it's been locked for over a week now. Anyone had similar with jaw problem and been on certolizumab pegol? Anyone know what I can do about my jaw?
