I've just come off Humira after a year. Humira has worked well for me but not in all areas of my AS therefore I start Remicade this Thursday (which is through IV in hospital). What I wanted to say was that I too started having raised lumps, redness at the injection site only a few months ago, which I had never had before?? Not sure why myself but as I don't take it anymore I havent thought about it, sorry. I think it's all to do with your body, so different for everyone.
I didn't use the pen as you have no control over when it's going to inject, I like to have no surprises. lol. I didn't realise how effective Humira was really until recently as I haven't injected for 5 weeks!! My body feels like it's gone backwards, aches and pains again in places I haven't for some time, plus pain in other joints that I didn't have before? Really looking forward to the Remicade treatment as my specialist believes this will help all areas. Fingers crossed.
Thinking of you.
I've been on Humira for a little over a year and it worked really well till about 3 months ago. My rheumy increased my dosage to every week instead of every two weeks and that's helped a lot. However, I find that I'm bruising a lot more and wonder if I'm going to have a problem. Have an apt. in December and will discuss it with her and probably have bloodwork done.
She did tell me that there are some new medicines similar to the Humira that are now available and that if the Humira stops working for me we'll try one of those. I hate trying anything new cause I'm always afraid of reactions but it's been wonderful having the relief that Humira has provided. So we'll see what happens.
Anyway - that's where I'm at.
