Metoject take two!

So since my last post, I have taken a break from the metoject to get rid of the bronchitis. Thankfully it has almost gone now, with only a slight cough left behind.

I decided to try again with my injections last Friday, but this time to inject into my leg to see if this would help prevent being sick. It actually hurt a lot more than my stomach, but maybe this was because I was so nervous about it this time. I also bled a little bit, which I never did with my stomach.

Despite this discomfort, I wasn't sick! I was extremely tired over the weekend and slept for most of it, but other than that, I was okay.

This morning I injected into my leg again, this time with much less pain, however when I took the needle out, a bit of the liquid from the needle came back out of my leg. A bit strange! I have emailed my nurse to make sure that this is okay. Once again, I have not been sick, which is great.


My finger was swollen and stuck in the
position in the first picture for months,
the second picture shows that I can now
bend it nearly all the way and it's much
thinner!
So is it working? I would say without a doubt the injections are having a positive effect. My psoriasis is definitely reducing and my joints feel almost pain free. I feel slight discomfort in a few of my joints at times, such as my index finger if I pick up something heavy, but definitely there is a massive improvement.




Hopefully now I am on the road to recovery and I can tollerate the metoject.

  1. That's great that's it's helping both the arthritis and psoriasis. As a person with psoriatic arthritis, I think that's complete reason to celebrate :)

  2. Hi there! I just stumbled across your blog while surfing the web. I am a young woman like yourself, and starting in October 2012 I started having weird joint pains. . .i have since been diagnosed with "inflammatory arthritis, probably ra" and it has been quite the journey, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually. Thank you for writing this blog, and I want you to know that I am sending you love and well wishes.

  3. Forgot to tell you, try the paleo diet and read the book "dying to be me". Both of these things have helped my symptoms a great deal.
