Ive been reading this website for some time now and I finally decided to write down my situation to hopefully someone could give me an idea
Ive been diagnosed with psoriathic arthritis and have immense pain both on my spine and my joints. there arent any part of me that doesn't hurt actually. Although my blood tests were normal I cant bear this pain anymore and I get scared thinking what if this never gets treated.My doctor suggested me to start a new kind of treatment, Humira. I did my first injection 5 days ago with no problems and had my hopes up for it. Now that its been 5 days and I dont feel any reduction with my pain I became depressed. Is there an optimal timeline where Humira takes effect? How long do I need to wait for it to start reducing the pain? Should I be worried now, or basically for how many weeks do you suggest me to wait?
Thanks for reading.
