I had the tb test and the doctor was very gentle. It did not hurt at all. Now I have to go back and have him check it and sign the form.
I asked him what I should watch for. He said it should not look injurious.
Not sure what that means. Anyway it is purpe and black. I am wondering if that is just because I am diabetec and bruise easily?

Hi Effie,

Oh, I am so glad you did the tb test. Now, here's to getting your Humira and feeling better. Let us know how the sleep clinic goes.

tongue  Congratulations!

Hopefully you will get started on the humira this week and sweet relief will soon follow.

If the TB is positive they usually are a raised, red, circular area around the test site.

Good luck with the sleep clinic tonight.

Judy,
You are on a roll now, so keep up the good work! Continue to take charge and get tough.
Maybe the bathroom needs painting or the husband needs a little attitude adjustment :-)
If the Mrs. doesn't keep me in line regularly, it all goes to heck.

BTW, they must have done a control test at the same time as the TB test.
The way it worked for me was the control should react like Donna suggested, the TB should not, indicating you are clean.
You won't have TB, almost no one does.

I hope the Humira does the trick!!! Craig

Judy, I'm so glad you are "on your way!" Good luck with the sleep clinic and I hope you are able to get the Humera injection this week w/no problems. Drive safe when going to it!
 
We'll be waiting for your update when you return. Good luck to you and hubby the next few days.

hi Judy!
good job with the TB test! bambam's right with the reading. are you on meds that prolong your clotting time and make you bleed? TBs are ID (intradermal) and go just into the skin.....so thats whacky how its purple.
thinking of you & hoping your making out at the clinic okay!
GO JUDY!!!! you'll do swell with the humira. we're all rooting for you!

Immune suppressed patients may not react to a PPD, so a control test is given to determine if they have the ability to react. In order to do this a control test of mumps or candida is injected with the PPD. If the patient does not react to the control test, they will not react to the PPD. Even if it is positive.
