IT, there are a few people on here that are having success with Humira, they may or may not post the board is running slow lately. I have crohns & was on Humira for 18 months & did well until it triggered my psoriasis. I have always had a weird response to meds long before crohns entered the picture. I loved the convenience of giving myself a shot over being hooked up to an IV for hours once a month.
It can be a slow starter so please give it a fair chance. I see people sometimes going on biologics thinking they will see relief immediately & I have never had that happen.
Thank you for your informative reply straydog. Ive had stomach issues and abdominal aches and pains for about
as long as I can remember. However...several weeks ago my bowel movements changed in such a way (4-6 movements/day and urgent) that I knew I needed some tests. The colonoscopy revealed the diagnosis. So far, I’m not feeling all that much worse physically than usual. The trouble I’m having is fatigue and no appetite).
From what I’ve read, that drug is a fairly serious drug so, I thought I’d get some feedback. I too seem to be sensitive to a lot of meds. A little bit of a shocker that I’m going to be giving myself shots. (Only SICK people have to do that LOL 😊). Anyway...
I did ask my doctor (I trust him), “What happens if we just let this ride with no treatment?” He said, “That’s not an option. It’ll get worse. Heck, you could end up with cancer.”
That pretty much got my attention and that I’m going to have to do this. Thanks again for your reply. (Maybe it’s not the poison I had imagined). I do understand it may be a while before any results are seen. Thank again. 😊
