After having adverse reactions to all previous meds I am having my third Humira injection on Wednesday. I am so happy because I can knit again! Albeit using circular needles to take the weight off my hands/wrists and occasionally wearing my Imak arthritis gloves. I am so happy. Over the past two years I have had numerous trial and errors with the usual meds, then went onto biologics (Enbrel) which worked a treat until my third injection and I had a bad reaction (face and lips swelled). I had to wait until Enbrel was out of my system before trying Humira. So far I feel nauseous the day after the injection and I'm suffering with dry mouth but I'm willing to put up with these symptoms as long as my RA's dampened and I can knit. I'm hoping I can get off prednisolone (after being on it for two years) once I know Humira is working. This could be the start of a new me…lose weight, more flexibility and generally feel human again.
I've added a picture of the throw I knit in three days…I am so happy!
