Good luck on the Humira!!! I agree letting it warm up a bit takes a bit of the sting away. I don't tend to have any major issue with injection pain though-maybe because I have plenty of padding, lol.
I don't take a probiotic right now either, and otherwise, I take a daily vitamin and I take milk thistle because I have heard these meds are tough on the liver. I have been on Humira through a trial for a little over a year now, and with the exception of a mini flare a couple of months ago (my problem time of year, it seems), it has worked amazingly well for me. Very few side effects that I can tell, and since I am in a trial, I have monthly blood draws and tests, so I assume if there was a problem or anything was coming back abnormal, I would know.
I am really hoping it is approved soon. It has been such a huge help to me, and while I know it wont help everyone, I know that it will help a lot of people. And selfishly, it will open up options to me for my husband and I to discuss having more children, since as it stands now, if I wanted to go ahead with that I would no longer be able to get the Humira.
I hope it helps you as much as it has me! The benefit is worth any injection pain I might experience, without a doubt!
