Hello all,
 
I just got home from seeing my new Rheumy.  He didnt have to do a bazillion tests to know it is in fact CD related arthritis and nothing else.  I did inform him that I have had RF factor done twice, lyme test 2 times etc and they all came back neg.  He was going to call my GI and tell him that his reccomendation is humira.  The pharmacy doesnt carry it on a regular basis they carry it on an as need basis so I would have to wait till it is called in then they would order it.  I wonder how my health insurance would cover it? I have united healthcare...do I need pre approval or do I just get it like any other script?
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
