I've been on humira for 4 months now...took about
3 months for it to really start working so don't give up if you don't feel better right away...I still feel fatigued a day or so after the shots and tend to now get injection site reactions (swelling around the area)...but it's no big deal, I put ice on it and its fine the next day...hope it works for you all!...debbie
