I recently went to my pharmacy for an over the counter drug and asked the assistant to check if it was ok to be taken with Humira. She checked with the pharmacist and he came out to me and asked what Humira was as he'd never heard of it.
Hello all, it has been a number of years since I have been on here - i have been diagnosed for about 5 or 6 years and for the past year i have been on humira which has been brilliant but for the past few weeks I have had this awful skin itching - it is now everywhere - i would have a tendency to have varicose excema but it is usually localised, this feels awful, plus I am feeling so so shattered and unwell. Has anyone had similar problems, I recently had the flu injection then on the same week took the humira dont think this should have had an impact.
Hello to you all, had that horrible flu/ cough, that in turn ended in chest infection, noticed RA had settled down, had rheumy nurse appointment yesterday for check up before going on Humira, did not meet the criteria, yet I was flaring just5 weeks before! Have flat hands for the fist time in 13 years.
Fairly new on here. Has anyone noticed any differences in efficacy since taking the new humira injection?
I have been taking humira for over 7 years and it drastically improved my ability to function, albeit still with difficulty. I have been on the new version for approx 5 months, I initially thought brilliant, it doesn't sting and leave a local reaction due to the preservative citric acid being replaced, however it is maybe just purely coincidental but it also ties in with a significant deterioration in my symptoms.
Hi All 5th week of being on Humira and since I injected last Sunday my feet and ankles swell up like balloons and I am extremely short of breath even when walking short distances. I suddenly can't wear clothes I was wearing a few days before as they are so tighgt around my waist and feel pressure in my head.
I have ankylosing spondylitis I had to put in a new claim because I had 3 changes one was I have to inject my self with humira every two weeks and have blood test every month and because I need to use a walking aid they said I cant have my pip because they say I can walk 200 meters witch I cant I'm in pain every day the health person that came out to see me took 15mins to right my report he said I take heart pills for blood pressure which I don't it is so annoying the way they treat disable people
6 years after after my first ever flare, having seen 4 nurses, 3 consultants, Prescribed MTX ( 25 ) and sulfasalazine, with no change and more frequent and severe flares, I am awaiting my delivery of Humira! My local hospital has taken on a new consultant and I was placed under her watch.
