Last week was my 4th week on humira and I saw solid stools. I had energy, my r-v fistula was calming down, and the butt leak stopped. I was beginning to thunk I was healing. Now, I feel weak, big time tummy cramping am on my 5th day of D, r-v is gross, and the charlie horses in my calves are awful. I do have to take some of the blame. I was feeling so great I added some dairy and fresh fruits and vegies--and a few drinks as I was on vacation. Just been getting worse. Next shot is Sunday. I wish I could take it right now.

Thanks for letting me vent. sad

It's not fair that we pay the price for wanting to eat and drink like 'normal people'. Hopefully you will feel better after your next shot (not long now). Good luck, Jo.
