I've been on Humira since January. It took about six weeks before I started seeing real effects. When I started, I had dactylitis on one foot and enthesitis on the heel of the same foot. There was just no way to put the foot down comfortably, so it was hard to walk. I also had hip, knee and back pain. Now I run almost every day, and take no NSAIDs.
I'd had pretty good results with MTX, but had to stop because of liver problems. Humira has been much more effective than MTX for me, and without any of the post MTX blues. I had been taking 20 mg s/c.
I heard an American ad on CNN last week talking about how terrible health care is in Canada. My Humira is paid for by the government after a $3500 deductible. If I had a lower income there would be no deductible at all. I really hope you find some funding assistance. These biologics are just too expensive without it.
I like your blog!
