I was started on Humira about 2 months ago because of GI bleeding from my Crohn's (have been bleeding off & on for several years). I have not seen any bleeding since the Humira kicked in but have been getting iron infusions since my iron levels were so low. Had been feeling pretty good…walking up & down stairs, gardening which I hadn't been able to do in so long from the anemia. about two weeks ago the bottom dropped out & I started with fatigue, SOB, not being able to sleep….Went to the Dr. today for blood work & to see when to schedule my next iron infusion & bam…my Hgb is 6.1. Of course they wanted me to go into hospital for blood transfusions but I want to wait & see if it comes back up on its own. Will go have iron infusion next week then blood work. So my question is: has anyone been on Humira without showing any GI bleeding & had their red blood count drop? I am so bummed out right now!
