I would have posted this in the Sjogrens group...but no one has been there since December!
I am coughing a LOT (albeit in spurts). The only other time I coughed this much was last year when I was in an RA and Sjogrens flare because I had to stop my meds for C-Dif infection.
The reason I am almost certain the coughing is related to Sjogrens is because when I take my Evoxac which is a medication that helps produce saliva, it stops the coughing and when I am due for another dose, it starts up again... which is exactly what it did when I was in my bad flare-up with both.
Now my meds RA is under control (with Orencia and MTX), but Sjogrens is not which is weird. Usually either they are both ok or both not ok cause the RA meds help the Sjogrens. I'm befuddled.
I've added Mucinex cause that's what the Sjogrens doc prescribed when I was in my bad flare and coughing.
Always something, huh?
I've taken Embrel for over a year now. But like I suspected, my doctor told me that it is no longer working.But my question is... does taking the biologic make any of you depressed and left without any energy at all for a few days?I've noticed that after I take the shot on Friday, for the next two days (especially on Saturday), I am extremely depressed and have NO energy. For the past few...
I literally have 6 different insurance denials going on right now. I have Medicare, so you don't know stuff isn't approved until after you get the service. Then it is too late. I am now on the clock to resolve them with the providers and Medicare before Medicare's deadline runs out or I get stuck with the bill. I leave voicemail with the billing departments for the provider, but nobody has called...
