I have just started Humira and have now had 2 injections, and the result is fantastic. To be fair I have also had a steriod injection 4 weeks ago while I was waiting for the Humira paperwork as I was so bad at thins time, which did help to get things going in the right direction. Anyway I am now in No yes NO pain and I can even do things like click my fingers which have been impossible for over two years. Absolutely fantastic. Early days and my finger joins are still swollen but going down slowly. Just need to build up my muscles again now as I had not realised how stiff and slow I was.
The only question I have for others who are taking this drug is do the injections get any easier to do? First one with the nurse watching was hard but the last one on my own took me nearly 20 minutes to pluck up courage to press the button and starting to dread the next one already. I know that rationaly it is only 10 seconds slight stinging sensation to get rid of a lot of continuous pain but still can't convince myself to hold the pen against my skin and press the button. Might have to give in, close my eyes and let my wife do the next one for me!
