so ive just realised thursday was my 10th week on humira, my nurse told me that the doctor would want to give this 3 months to work..
thats 2 weeks away, a recent blood tests is showing a slow/slight elevation in my CRP as they are reducing all my other meds, i have severe cramps after eating, headaches, severrreee dizziness, as well as a bunch of stuff i put down to humira.
This to me would indicate humira still hasnt got to work yet?
I have honestly hated this drug from the first day i took it but agreed if it was going to work id deal with that hate haha, ive also heard with severe crohns it can take longer for it to work..
Anyone else on this, severe crohns or not, how much longer should i be looking at keeping this up for time seems to be passing so slowly between doctors appointments but so quickly in all other situations, i just dont want to waste even more time than i have trying to find a balance here..
Its my fist say back to work tomorrow after 3 months off sick, goes without saying that i am not looking forward to this week however this shall be the biggest test of all i fear haha.
so any tips on what i should be looking out for as i dont really suffer from D unless im in a major flare, any questions i might want to consider when i next see my doctor, coping strategies for the pain! or just your experiences would really be appreciated! :)
