I wonder if anyone can tell me about humira. i have been on 3 DMARDS. None have worked for me unfortunately. I had my app with consultant today and he gave me a leaflet about this biologic and given me a month to think about going on it. I've done some research and didn't like the bits that says you could get bad infections and it could cause cancer. I don't necessary believe this. But would like to hear people's stories whilst being on this also about self injecting.
I have been in the worse flare for a month now, even went to A&E Friday as I thought I had septic arthritis - my feet and wrists were so swollen and painful that I could barely walk or do anything.
I'm on diclofenic which is calming my joints down and I have steroids to hand of I need them, which I Might need to take as I've only got 4 days left of diclofenic and then I think I will flare again. I've stopped my demands ( doctor agrees) so I have a month with nothing other than steroids. During the afternoon my legs and feet are in agony but morning it wears off. Very strange...
Thanks in advance :))
