Living with Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA)

Trying Tremfya


Hi All,

I took my first Tremfya injection last friday.
This is my third biological. I started with Humira, which didn’t do anything for me.
Then we gave Stelara a go. That did a bit more, but not enough.
In the meantime I changed to another consultant as I didn’t feel the current one was progressive enough.
The new one put me on Otezla 5 months ago, stopped the MTX 4 months ago and started me on Tremfya last week.
So far I have to say that I feel a good bit better.
Initially I still had some pain, a lot of fatigue and extremely stiff. Slowly the pain went away and the stiffness became less. The fatigue persisted for a good while. Mid December the fatigue only became every couple of days. Most days I felt ok.
So, after taking Tremfya I was absolutely fine. Only occasional fatigue and virtually no pain or stiffness!! To say I’m delighted is an understatement :grinning:
I’ll keep ye all posted re progress.
Going on holidays next Monday without pain!!


Congratulations! Great news.

Getting rid of pain - fantastic. Less stiffness - fantastic. Seeing off fatigue - it’s like the sun has come out after an especially long, hard winter.

Long may it last and happy holidays!


Fantastic sbender! It’s so great when you get a combination that works, isn’t it? :grin::grin::grin:


Thanks @Sybil :slightly_smiling_face:


You can say that again!! Long may it last
I’m still shocked to be honest. After living with all these symptoms for so long, i’m nearly afraid to believe it. :grimacing:


That’s fabulous - enjoy your holidays!


Thanks for sharing your results with your new med. I need to switch biologics and I’ll ask my rheumy about this one. I suffer from great fatigue and would love some relief!
