I love you & I'm SO glad that you were born!!💘 #adalimumab#dogpeople#girls
After 2 weeks of particularly rough GI side effects from Humira, it looks like my time on Humira has come to an end. My consultant and biologics nurse are currently working out a new plan of treatment which I am hoping will still include a biologic. My joints have responded so well to Humira, but unfortunately the gastro side effects, although not serious, are getting a bit much. Can't help but feel a bit gutted though
When your BASDAI (Ankylosing Spondylitis disease activity) has reduced from 5.6 to 1.5 in only 5 injections (9 weeks)!! What a fantastic improvement, I can't wait to share it with my rheumatologist! My aim is to get to 0.9 which is the lowest score you can get on BASDAI!
Today was the first day in 5 weeks that I have woken up feeling really stiff, and I am only 6 days out from my last humira injection. I'm hoping it is just a fluke with the jet lag and massively different climate from the US to the UK. To try and loosen up a bit, I'm going to Boxercise tonight with some friends which should be a good laugh and will get those joints moving
Has anyone been diagnosed with IBD after starting a biologic? Did you find a way to distinguish between IBS and IBD? Since starting humira my stomach problems that I've been ignoring for years have completely resolved. I was late on my last humira injection and my abdominal symptoms have come back along with joint symptoms. My nurse is thinking it could be IBD if symptoms have resolved with humira vs IBS which wouldn't. #inflammatoryboweldisease#crohns#crohnsdisease#colitis#ulcerativecolitis#IBD#humira#adalimumab#colitis
First time injecting with a syringe - it was so easy and painless! I'm very pleased with the decision to switch, I had 2 nurses coming to show me how to inject as it is apparently unusual to have a UK patient with a syringe not a pen
