Hi all, my first blog although I've been a member for some time now and found the blogs very helpful. RA invaded about 6 years ago and I knew what it was because my sister had had it since her early twenties and died from complications in 2009 - so you can imagine how I felt about having this horrid illness.
So moving on to recent developments, I was on Humira for 12 months but taken off at the beginning of the month due to being very unwell with a DAS of 6. All other usual meds (mtx et al, leflu) all tried over the years but always back to square one or worse. I am under investigation for too many white blood cells and hyper thyroid, but not on any drugs at all now. Rheumy gave me a nice shot of steroids before I left on 29th april and a leaflet for Tocilizumab with another appointment for 1st August. I've lost 7lbs since the steroid inj - nice as hands look like hands and knees although not to be displayed are a much better shape. Is it all fluid just to go back on next week?
Not sure what is happening but no pain - bonus.
Has anyone come off Humira and been unwell in a general sort of way?
Hope you all have a good day and evade the showers.
