Welcome to the board, and I completely sympathize with how you're feeling right now. Getting diagnosed and dealing with the aftermath is overwhelming.
I'm on Humira right now, and I was previously on Remicade. Neither gave me side effects whatsoever, at least until I had a reaction to Remicade, but that was after doubling my dose. With Humira, the injection site is a little sore for a day or two, but nothing else. It's really not bad giving myself a shot either. And, it's helped me so much. I didn't realize how poorly I felt, even when I was on Remicade, until I started Humira.
The one thing about
me is that I've run through nearly every medication there is out there, and I've done all that in just under 2 years. So, for me, if/when Humira stops working, I might be looking at surgery. But, it would be my first, and really, that isn't too shabby. Some people only have a couple surgeries, and some people have lots, it all depends.
