I have one more syringe left, of Humira. You guys may remember I told you that they had elevated my triglycerides
to a high level & also my liver enzymes had increased some. But I haven't had a shot in a month, because of strep throat
and my CD symptoms are already coming back. I'm having noisy bowel sounds and badly bloated. I really want to take
this last shot. I need the relief it could bring. What do you think?? It was after all meant to be my last one.

I'm a little scared but it was doctors orders. It can't hurt me much more than that's already done, can it?

Hi Dunny2,

I suggest you ask your Doc. Maybe he/she is waiting to start something else?? Sounds like you need to talk to your Dr anyway because of your returning symptions.

Take care!

I would talk to the doc, he may have a suggestion that brings you relief without as much risk to your liver.

Could the bowel symptoms actually be from the Strep throat treatment & not CD related? Anti-biotics are notorius for GI problems..

You have a good point, but I told the doc I wouldn't take anything stronger than amoxycillin, that is usually safe for me.
Anything stronger & I know I would get problems. But I did take an extended course.

My problem is I know that shot will make me feel a little better albeit for awhile, and then I'm definitely not allowed anymore....
