I find this medication hard to take because I do not do injections well. Also, it stings and burns worse than any medication/shot I have taken for RA. But, I am having good results. Physically able to do things I have not done in along time.

One month after starting Humira pen, I began having severe daily headaches, migraines actually. Eight months later, I'm still miserable, even though I've reduced my injection to 1/4 the regular dose. Now I just have pain, swelling, and a new migraine med to take along with the Humira. Want to get off it but need a new doc, I guess.

Humira is wonderful. It took 5 years for a doctor to finally diagnois me & prescribe humira. I have been taking it since July 2007 & feel like I have my life back. Before my diagnosis I had to use a cane & sometimes a wheelchair to get around. Within 2 months of using the Humira I was walking on my own. Almost a year later, I can walk the zoo with my nieces & nephews, or run ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had psoriatic arthritis and had many open sores and my feet were cripped to where I use a walker at age 35. After using Humira, I was able to walk again w/o assistance in a matter of days after the treatment. It has given me my life back.
