I know we've talked a lot about the second week of humira and how long the injection lasts. For me, it SEEMS to be getting better. Last injection I was sick on the second Tuesday. This injection, sick on the second Thursday. My doc says this shouldn't be happening but we're holding on for another month or so--the improvement is so very slow. Today was day 102. Going to do a sed rate, etc. to see where inflammation number is--chronically, I've always had high sed rate.

SO. . . . How are other humira folks doing in their second weeks? Better? Worse?

Sammies, why does your doctor say you should't be getting sick in the second week? When I started Humira, I was told that a lot of people experienced problems in the second week.

Is there any chance you could be bumped up to weekly injections?

I haven't asked him about weekly injections but it is on my mind. We're going to get some blood work done this week--see where the sed rate is and if it is--hopefully-coming down. Over the course of my history with this disease, I have had a chronically high sed rate even in asymptomatic times.

thanks for the thoughts Ivy.
