I started a biosimilar medication to Humira at the end of June 2020.
From August 2020 to December I was completely back to normal.
However in December I started to feel the telltale signs that I might be starting to flare (gurgling stomach, softer bowel movements, nausea, back ache, bloated) so I started taking suppositories in the morning and foam at night which helped stop the flare from escalating but hasn't quashed the symptoms completely. I have some good days where I feel I'm getting somewhere and then I have days like today where my stomach is so sore and I just generally feels unwell.
I only have 1 bm a days, sometimes 2, they are formed but v.soft and no blood thankfully, some urgency in the morning but its controllable.
I'm going to ring my GI during the week but I'm just wondering if Humira isn't working for me anymore, should I move on to something else?
Also do some people find when they are flaring that their stomach feels worse than their bowel, I often feel that way.
