  1. So sorry you are not feeling well. I took Humira for 6 months for Crohn’s-colitis. My recommendation is to have an RN at your dr’s office give you the first injections so you can get used to it. I was never able to self-administer… I used to make my husband do it. Ice the injection site for about 10 minutes ahead of time, and take the Humira out of the fridge for 30 minutes prior; both of these will make it slightly more comfortable. Hate to say it but it burns going in. I have heard that getting it via syringe (instead of the pen) is easier to tolerate.

    1. Thank you so much, I’ve had a few emails with EXACTLY the same advice, so when we finally make a decision I’ll be ready for it. I guess.

  3. I feel for you. I have been reading about your RA and can’t imagine what you’re going through. Hang in there. My prayers are with you!

  4. It sucks being sick and not feeling 100% yourself. Hope you start feeling better soon. I know what you’re going through. Big hugs to you AND your fam. It’s tough on everyone.
