    I can move! no more ice picks in my shoulders and feet. seems to do something to the bladder, pee a lot and sometimes painful. Not sure if its from Humira or the methotrexate? or just getting older?. all in all, its good. stay away from sick people though, you will get sick more often and more severe.

    Comment:
    I was almost totally immobile because of rheumatoid arthritis symtoms-listless, painful joints, difficulty moving while on my initial dosage of prednisone and methotrexate. Within days of starting Humira my symptoms greatly improved and almost totally disappeared. I've taken Humira ever other week for almost two years and I've resumed playing tennis a couple times a week-I'm completely ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Humira caused return of severe Migraine headaches with acute aura (visual disturbance), tinnitus, and parathesias in my face and limbs. Symptoms appeared a few days after the second 40mg injection. I developed a rash resembling Redman Syndrome, which is caused by an excessive release of histamine into the system. I had been on Enbrel for 9 years with excellent control of my RA and freedom from Mig ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Made me profoundly tired, gave me a strange rash on arms and face, fever, nausea. Only wanted to sleep for a full week after injecting, so this left me feeling awful half of the time because I was taking it every other week. I have a life to live. I'd rather be crippled and old than effectively crippled while young.

    Comment:
    Started with Methotrexate but due to lung damage from RA I had to switch. Humira has worked well for the last 2 years. I am taking it once per week so I have a higher risk of pneumonia, .... I have to be vigilant about avoiding situations where I could pick up a cold or virus. Pen works great for me.
