That is great Joanie58. I too am so happy with the Humira injections. It has made a world of difference, not only with the pain factor, but my energy level has increased alot. I try not to over do it, but when you feel better you just want to keep going. My rheumy is slowly weaning me off the Methotrexate. Once we see how I do without it then he said we would talk about reducing the Arava. An injection every two weeks and no other meds......it's been so long I can't imagine it.
One question, what is an auto-injector? My husband gives me my injections. I think that I could do it (needles don't really bother me), but it burns so bad that I am afraid that I would back off injecting when the burn starts. I did put an ice pack on my leg prior to injecting and that did help alot. Also I think the area you wipe with the alcohol pad, let it dry a little after cleaning with alcohol before injecting. I think we were wiping with alcohol and immediately injecting, causing some of the alcohol to get in and burn.
Anyway, glad you are better!!!!
