So here is the latest, I have been taking Humira for about
4 months and was taking it every other week. I was noticing that the second week each day would be a little worse. I would begin to feel cramping and pain. I talked to my doctor and they are switching me to take Humira every week. I took the shot and felt a little better the next day. Then the day after that I had even more pain and bleeding. My doctor said it isn't from the Humira and we should try to wait about
a month for the Humira every week to work. In the meantime I am still pretty uncomfortable. I have much more gas which a new symptom for me. My stool still has a white film around it. I am looking for any advice to carry me through this month.
Diagnosed with UC September 2005.
Once told after a colonoscopy that I had Healed colitis, I beg to differ.
Meds & other things tried:
Colazol-once added to my allergies because it just didn't work right
Azathioprine-have been on this the longest
Prednisone-can never seem to get off it
Xifaxan-I have a problem with C-diff, so this anitbiotic controls that-PRICEY!!!
Trivora Tablets-birth control that stopped working properly
Necon-birth control supposedly for people with other diseases
Various Vitamins-made me puke
Miralax-to keep me regular, but made me crampy
2000 calorie diet-to get my weight up, didn't work, can't gain weight
