I know I haven't been online much. I was really busy studying.
I just wanted to let you all know that I chose Humira over Remicade. We started it 2.5 weeks ago. I just had my two shots this Tuesday. I get injections and I'm guessing it's less painful than the Humira pen. Humira is not as painful as I thought it would be, which is great! I didn't have any allergic reactions which is even more great!! And no rash, no itching, no side-effects on my belly besides something that looked like a tiny little bruise on the spot I got one of my shots. The only thing that I've noticed is that I feel like I've been hit by a truck for a couple of days but other than that I think I'm ok. My belly hurts after the injection and all but it's no big deal for now. Actually these last two shots (I got 4 the first time) hurt more than the first time I got Humira.
But I think I'm starting to feel better! I was really surprised at that! But I don't want to get too excited just yet hehe.
Thank you all for being so supportive and sharing your experiences with me!!
