Hey Niall, I've done some traveling while I was on Enbrel at two doses a week and didn't have much trouble. I packed them in a cooler pack while I was on the go as if it were lunch and just made sure that I had a place to refreeze the ice packs and store the meds. Ofcourse, it's been nearly two decades since I'm out of college, so there is probably a bit of difference between my idea of traveling from yours. Twenty years ago, when I traveled I often stayed in youth hostels, now it's hotels and often, I'll take the room with a fridge - just for convenience, never mind the meds.
How do you currently recieve your Humira? Mine comes in one shipment per month. Also, are you on the two week plan, or are you injecting every week? While traveling for a long time, every week would definitely be a problem, but if you're on every 2 weeks, perhaps you could have the meds shipped to or picked up by a friend or family member who could then forward one dose at a time to you at wherever you will be.
Having AS mess up my life was bad enough, but if I had to put off plans like you are doing, it would really drive me mad. I hope that you can somehow work out the logistics so that you can get that trip in. Best wishes!
