Hi All its been sometime since i have been on here. First of all my doctor switched me from Remicade
to Humira. It helps my Crohn's but does nothing for my RA. Remicade was to expensive thats why the switched to Humira. I just developed a pain on my upper right side above were the CD is. I have to go to the hospital I am getting an ultra sound of my gallbladder.

Hey Teddy,
I post on the CD forum too, thought I would answer you on here though.
I have just started Humira for my CD, glad to hear it works for your CD, hopefully it works for mine :)
I just wanted to add that I take MTX for my AS and that helps with keeping that at a liveable level. Maybe you should mention to your Rheumy that the Humira isnt cutting it for your RA and he/she may offer something like MTX as well - just a thought.
Good luck with your gallbladder scan.
keep us posted.

Hi again, welcome back, the humira isn't enough for my RA, I take mtx 20mg as well and that usually works for me. Its probably worth asking your rheumy once youre gall bladder is sorted.
Best of luck, golitho
