Hi All... :D

Thought I'd better update you all. The Enbrel has now been stopped as I
was having a site reaction to it. Very big one.

So finally got the go ahead for Humira, which I started 2 weeks ago, I've just
injected my second....................all I can say is ....WOW... :shock: I haven't felt
this good in a year and a half.
So I'm only hoping it will continue to work.. :)

Yvette.

    Hi,

    I will, I still ache a little but most of the horrid pain has gone into a
    subtle ache. I even managed half hour in the garden.... :D
    The fatigue has all but gone too.

    I haven't had a site reaction to it either..

    Very pleased to hear a success story :) - less fatigue, now there's a happy thought.. can I ask how you got on with humira re side effects (my current meds *may* be losing their effectiveness so I am thinking well ahead & will be pestering any & all on here for their personal tales of anti-TNF).

    Hi toady,

    As of yet I haven't had any side effects from the Humira. I haven't had an
    injection site rash either, just a simple needle mark... :D
    So I'm hoping it will continue. I hope you find the some relief soon.

    Thanks for the reply Tinky, it's much appreciated. My current meds are working for now, it's just that I suspect they may be on the slide. Nice to hear you haven't had nasty side effects - for my own reference, but chiefly for your sake as well of course. thanks again.
