Hi all
My name is Darren haven't been on this forum in a long time, I am a uni student and up until a week ago I was suffering with AS, No it didn't just disappear, in fact my doctor started my in a treatment called humaria and since I have started it, my movement increased and the length of time I can move around has as well and I have been sleeping so much better. when I see my docter in a few weeks I am going to kiss him, no I am not gay, just extremely happy I have not felt like this in a long time, I am 21 and now I actually feel like my age and can act like it too, I know I hasn't disappeared but feeling like this has been amazing, I have started walking without limping which so I don't get funny looks or remarks off people any more and hopefully soon I can return to the gym and get a bit of my old strength back again and travel more, I am so happy

    Hi Darren and welcome back. You sound so happy I find I'm smiling as I type. It's lovely to hear success stories.

    One or two people have very good results with humira and I hope it continues to work for you for a long, long time.

    Best of luck with your uni studies.

    thanks guys, really happy I am glad things are finally getting settled and I have been even managing to get the gym, it feels good to run again, now that my arthritis has calmed down I have felt less tired and been able to concentrate on my studies more, I cant believe that I finally graduate in June or Jul, I feel lucky I finally feel like I am going to do really well, my nan always believed it and now finally I do to.
    I feel truly blessed and also I should thank you guys for your support I know I wasn't on this a lot but when I did the support and advice was great, I this treatment is not a cure but its middle ground and at least for a while I will be in control rather than it controlling me :)
    again thanks guys hope you all alright and wish you all the best :)
