I have been on Humira for over a year. Before I was on Humira my Blood Pressure was a little high but not that bad. (i didnt take meds for BP) A mth or so after being on Humira my BP went up 150/105. Im 27, not overweight, and I would say I am in good shape. My doctor started me on BP meds... long story short... a few mths ago I felt horriable, nauseous, headache, dizzy, and my bp was up. I went to er because of my BP and they said I had anxiety. This didnt really go away. I stopped taking my Humira because of all these "issues" going on.... I just felt horrible and wasnt sure if I was fighting a bug. I ended up stopping humira for a few mths. The last 2 mths I have felt great...I felt like I had energy. After talking to my gasterologist 3 wks ago he really wanted me to go back on my Humira. I had to do the loading dose again because of the length of time I was off the med. I did the leading dose and am due for a shot this week... I feel the same way as I did a few mths ago. I am soooo dizzy, nauseaous...and my bp is back up for 157/102. For the past week I feel worthless...I have NO energy and get home from work and just sleep.... CAN ANYONE RELATE TO THIS???
I went to my PCP yesterday and he is going to send me to a neurologist.... but he thinks it could be a possible side effect from my humira. I have tried to call my gi doc and am waiting for him to call me back
