I have been on Humira weekly for 6 years. In the last few months I've been getting a hot flushy rash on my cheeks. about a month ago, I had hives all over my scalp-like pull my hair out hives. In the meantime, I developed a terrible cold then sinus infection which my primary dr treated with antibiotics and pred. The pred made everything peachy. So I was good. And then I tapered off and the rash got hotter and more uncomfortable. I just feel kinda "unwell" not particularly horrible though. Today, I saw my GI and now I have to do some blood tests to see if I am developing drug-induced lupus. Would the symptoms really be so mild, ie a hot face rash? This test is not covered by my insurance so I'm banking on the company only charging me $250 once denied. Does anyone here have any experience with Prometheus and these tests and also what they charge?
