Been on Humira 8 months. I worry about INFECTION constantly. Actually, the worry has taken over my life. Shoulder pain? “SEPTIC SHOULDER!” Hip pain? “SEPTIC HIP!” Wrist pain? “SEPTIC WRIST!” Had a tooth pulled. “INFECTED TOOTH SOCKET!!” Feeling kinda’ rundown? “SEPSIS!!!”
My mind is a terrible place to be. Constantly taking my temperature for the “tell-tell” sign of infection.
Don’t even mention covid. Haven’t seen another human being in a year lol.
What I wanna know is….”Just how immunocompromising is this stuff?”
My brother-in-law law is fighting cancer. (Chemo). They had family in for Christmas. Didn’t seem to bother him. Never got sick (none did).
Is Humira as bad as chemo? Diabetes? HIV? Just where on the scale does this drug fall in comparison to…say…other illnesses and things that cause one’s immune system to be compromised?
I’ll go out on a limb here. I just read where close to half of the covid deaths involved diabetes. I have to believe…very few covid deaths have been attributed to Humira for UC. (If any, at least appreciably so).
Where on the continuum of “”Immunocomprosed” does Humira for UC put one?
Thanks /rant lol
I started Humira 2 months before COVID. Every time I read something about
COVID it say except if you are immunocompromised… occasionally I see severely immunocompromised. So I have the same question as you. I am a teacher and our school requires masks and I wear a kn95 but I definitely am not out and about
like a lot of my friends because I don’t know the answer to your question.
