Hi, I am currently on a break from Methotrexate and Humira and am due to introduce them back slowly a few weeks back. I was reluctant to start back on Humira and now really wobbly as a very close friend of mine is about is really ill with cancer and its got me thinking about the awful side effects of these drugs. I need to get back on something as my joints are becoming stiff and painful and I know we are all at risk of cancer, but do I want to add to that risk? I have an appointment with the Rheumy nurse next week but as I haven't yet started the injections as instructed, was thinking of postponing. Are there any other tnf treatments that don't have such severe side effects that I could possibly ask to be transferred onto? I know, I am always told that quality of life now and prevention of severe joint damage is better than IF I suffer from these horrendous side effects, but that isn't helping me at the moment!!!! I know, from reading these posts in forums that I am not alone about the worry of side effects. Confused today
