I saw my GI last week, she switch remicade to Humira, and put me back on Imuran. But the so called ' arthritis' is getting the better of me. My arm has been deformed for days now, and the pain is like no other. No one will send me to a reumy. I'm still waiting to hear from the humira nurse to come show me how to use it. tho I heard it still can take 3-6 months before I feel a sort of relief. I'm thinking of going to a walk in clinic and hope to god he can send me to a reumy like yesterday ( but for those of you in Montreal, knows how long it can take to get an apointment with these specialist)
Any advice or insight would be gladly appreciated.
