turn First HAPPY NEW YEAR smilewinkgrin I sure hope this year is better than the last!!!! But my Question is if coming off humira has anyone had problems going to the bathroom. I've been taking phillips, and miralax, and I still have a problem going, and they are very dark stools when I do go. I hurt on my right side, and its where I have around 3 foot with ulceration,I was wondering if I could be starting a blockage????? shocked I have no energy all I want to do is sleep. and I not sure if I'm getting sick or if its something to do with stopping the humira. but I feel like ####.

Sounds like a call to your GI is warranted. Whenever a person has a change in bowel habits and/or a worsening of symptoms, it's time to make a call to the doctor. Also, they might want a stool sample to test for blood and/or order blood tests to make sure you are not anemic or have some other problem brewing.
