Has anyone been able to recover from an inflamed "sausage finger" with Humira?

    I inject meth together with humira but despite the 'belt and braces' of the drugs my PsA can become active for a short while. The inflammation indicates that your disease is going through this type of phase but that will ease. It is hard to rest fingers :wink: but if yours is warm or hot to the touch icing it may help to reduce the swelling. Do you also have an anti-inflammatory medication? I have some diclofenac in stock which I take if my swelling (usually my toes) doesn't reduce within a few days. DD

    I've not had humira but my experience has always been that, once a flare has been got under control, the swelling reduces and the joint(s) can look 'normal'. Eventually, if the disease is left unchecked, the damage done at each flare results in deformity but you rarely see much of that now because the meds prevent it.

    No meds at this time. Re-starting Humira this evening...hopefully it won't take long to kick in and will improve matters.
