I almost freaked out to hear Humira is not approved for UC, I didn't realize that. My insurance gives me a hard time as it is. However, I JUST got diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis, (which I don't think I have, I think it was a reaction to the Remicade but we'll see) Sooo, if my insurance won't approve Humira for the UC, I can get it from the Arthritis Center. LOL Maybe all those pains were worth it in a way.
