I havent been here in a while so forgive me if this question has already been asked/answered. I am currently on Remicade, have been for 10+years. Recently I've been feeling like some of my joints are weak (its the only way i can explain it) and i have a few sores that havent been healing well AND i had an ear infection shortly after an infusion that went CRAZY.
My question is: Does Humira (or Cimzia for that matter) have the same level of issues with the Lupis and immune system difficulties? If i were to switch to one of these drugs would just the change in make up of the drug be enough for my body to stabalize these issues? I'm not SURE that these issues are related to Remicade, but my gut (pun not intended) is telling me they are.
