 1  psoriasis condition worsened 10x going onto areas of my body I had never had it before and very bad, not even light spreading, severe fever and chills, dry flaking skin on my face like a bad sunburn, swelling on my face, joint pain, exhaustion Took it for two months before having horrible side effects. It began to spread right away but we had hope that it would work after reading other reviews. Just after two months I had horrible side effects that last for two weeks. F 39 2 months

 2  Crohn's A few days into taking Humira, I am having a terrible plethora of side effects. I ONLY WISH I COULD RE-STICK MYSELF, AND PULL THE HUMIRA BACK OUT!!! That is how bad I feel. 1. I have been taking Entocort (Budesinide for almost 10 years, but I was getting slightly worse, and my GI termed my condition "severe." This drug worked well, but when you see a Humira commercial every ten minutes -literally- you wonder, maybe I too can feel better??? Now I'm having terrible side effects that are ruining what little quality of life I had before Humira. 1. Excruciating pain in my wrist. Strange, scary sharp pain. Nothing until you put a load on it, pushing out of the chair to get up, I almost dropped the coffee cup this morning. 2. Night sweats that soak my bed making it almost unbearable to stay in. I was laying in bed this morning, and you could feel the sweat form, ball up, and roll down my back and chest. It's SCARY cause it is so wierd! 3. Stomach pain, I now need a Nexium morning AND night. 4. Toes on one foot feel tingly-numb and now half the toes of the other foot as well. 5. Heart palpitation, panic attacks. Just out of the blue. 6. MORE groin pain, not less. 7. And generally... I just feel like hell. NOT what I expected or ever WARNED ABOUT before my decision to try Humira. But maybe all this will pass, and the Humira do me good??? M 59 5 days

 1  psoriatic arthritis / psoriasis pain/tingling @ injection site - cold/chills - Memory loss (short term & medium term) - mood swings/ negative change in disposition I didnt NOTICE any side effects (other than my usual oversweating going away). However, 72h after my 1st dose, my family noticed I became very forgetful. I would ask some1 something&ask the same Q minutes later(many times), forgetting appointments, forgetting I had even made this or that appointment, etc. >>Week2 I exhibited behavioral changes. I was observed in hospital overnight&told I was OK. The next day, I got into a car accident!! THERE WERE NO WARNINGS ON THIS DRUG ABOUT OPERATING HEAVY MACHINERY - until 'used to its effects' or otherwise! But im confident in blaming my mental state for this incident. >>My accident convinced me to pause the humira. Several days after this, I noticed the mind-fog as it dissipated, once enough of the drug left my system. >>MOST of the above had to be relayed to me by my loved ones who endured my behavior while I was on humira. Other than flashes, I have no recollection of the month I was on this drug! Only in hindsight do I notice the difference! @the time I thought I was fine...every1 else was nuts...quite disturbing! >>It DID affect my psoriasis. My elbow plaque is almost gone. I have other skin areas which did not improve. But I was prescribed humira for the arthritis which did not improve. >>With its wide range of known&unknown side effects&its failure to improve my psoriatic arthritis. If all you have is psoriasis, its not worth the risk just to improve you M 33 1 months

 1  RA(Rheumotoid Arthritis) August 8, 2014, feet and ankles swollen with edema so bad I could hardly walk, short of breath, pnumonia, extremely weak, feverish, chilling to the point of shaking, went into a coma on August 15, 2014, near death experience, septic shock, sepsis. Pain level has increased 100% from before. Did injection myself because my Doctors told me just to read the instructions and because I was a nurse I would be okay. This was my very first time using a biologic drug and was not shown or taught how to inject myself. Now I have made 6 trips to the emergency room because of low back pain. The doctor I seen on my last visit to the ER told me it was Sciatica. I could have hit a nerve doing this injection myself since I was not taught the correct was to inject this drug. Now I am down with the Sciatic Nerve in my back, have lost control of my bladder due to the pressure from the sciatic nerve. I will never be the same! This is a dangerous drug and needs to be taken off the market! I don't know how mu NEEDS TO BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET! F 65 1 days

 1  psoriasis Started my first dose of humira which was a double dose to start me off. Was fine after the injections. Started feeling flu symptoms. Not myself but nothing major. 4 days later i start feeling absolutly awful. Diorea. Being sick. Feverish. Weak. Deep muscle aches in lower back and lower legs. Bruising on my legs. Chest tightness. Heart palpatations. And severe dizzyness. Was literally having to keep myself from fainting. Worst bit of all was that i rang the emergency line and they told me to go straight to a n e and i was left waiting for two and a half hours and when i got seen i just got told to go home and ride it out. When i finally got an appointment with my dermatologists they told me i should have been seen straight away and not let out of hospital. This drug could have killed me. And they have now told me i can not take it again. Its crazy and a shame because humirs cimpletly got rid of all my psoriasis in a matter of 4 days i was covered from head to toe!! F 26 1 days

 1  Rheumotoid Arthritis Two hours after injection my feet and ankles swelled with edema. Was so weak, I could hardly walk. Weak, chilling to the point of shaking, felt feverish. Feet and ankles were swollen every day and I was so weak I couldn't walk! Five days after the injection, I went into a coma! This was on August 15, 2014. I was unresponsive and don't remember anything until I woke up at eight minutes after midnight on August 17. My two sisters in Heaven came to get me and then my oldest sister said I had to come back, that I couldn't go with them right now. This is when I woke up! I was released from the hospital August 17 from pneumonia and on August 18 the nurse calls me to tell me that one of my blood cultures was showing preliminary positive. I asked for what? She said Dr. Nathan wanted me to come back into the hospital. I did not go this day . The next day, August 19, Dr. Nathan calls herself telling me I had Sepsis and needed to get back to the hospital as soon as possible! I did not hesitate because I'm a nurse and I know I could be dead anytime! I reported to the ER where they took me straight back to a bed. An IV was started and as soon as the IV antibiotics came from pharmacy. They were started! I was in the hospital 4 days taking different antibiotics . I went into a coma, died and came back and had Sepsis from this drug. I'm still having problems. I'm weaker, my pain level has increased 100 per cent from before and every since the Humaria injection on August 8, it's been hell! F 65 1 days

 5  Crohns Disease & Lupus Before Humira, I had terrible joint pain & a rash on palms of both hands, chest, arms, neck & part of my face. The 2nd day after the "loading dose", the rash is completely gone. Joint pain is better by 100%! The only "side effect", which was a small trade off, was upset stomach for a couple days after injection & a run down (I call it a heavy feeling), but that's to be expected. I was on Remicade for almost 3 yrs before doctors changed me to Humira so maybe I've not been on this long enough. But, so far so good!! F 40 2 months

 4  SEVERE sudden onset RA I didn't have ANY side effects for the first several years. Now I have thining hair...especially on the top of my head and hilar enlargement. I still have episodes of EXTREME fatigue, but not nearly as often as I did with RA. I came down with RA just overnight. :-( The pain...especially in my hands and wrists was nearly unbearable and I vaguely recall asking my husband to cut them off. :-( . I could no longer use my hands, hold a glass of water myself, hold eating utensils, wipe myself after using the bathroom (HORRIBLE..:-(( ), dress myself, walk...nothing. I had to be carried into the Rheumatolgist's office. All I asked for is DEATH. I was no longer living...just existing in bed with no sleep because of the pain. Methotrexate did nothing, Enbrel was the next step, but could not relieve the wrist and hand swelling and pain. With Humira, my hands became NORMAL again, but it took time for my fingers and wrist to straighten! Then I could WALK, and we had meals for the first time in months!! Plus I could dust, vacuum, clean my house, wash and iron, take care of my dogs and cats and mow the entire lawn! (Yes, I have a riding mower!) I can no longer jog 6 miles each day, dance, fell trees for firewood, cut and split firewood, nor can I garden as I used to do. I need someone to help my hubby build the garage addition to our house as I can no longer hammer as I once did and do the heavy lifting. I MISS being able to do heavy construction work, but the Humira GAVE me back the use of my hands, took away the horrible pain and allowed me to sleep, and allowed me to walk again. Without it, I can honestly say I would rather be dead. So I give it an A+ F 69 8 years

 5  psoriasis sinusitis (degree varies, usually not too bad) Had ps 40 years, tried everything topical, UVA (works for a few years), UVB (worsened), spent a month hospitalized for ps at age 30. Injections have minimal discomfort (small red/bruise if on thigh, no mark if on abdomen; I remove from fridge about 30 min before injection). Symptoms improved within first month, and since, great relief. A good side-effect (sounds weird) is that breathing became much more relaxed, maybe due to lack of itching/peeling/confidence. I wish I'd had this 40 years ago, hope it keeps working… Finally can enjoy life. F 60 3 years

 1  RA Developed rash on face. Dr. said I had drug induced Lupus from the Humira. Within a few weeks developed terrible stomach/esophageal pain. I had a bunch of tests which they said did not really show the reason for the stomach pain. Within a short time after eating my meals I got very uncomfortable. Lost a few pounds probably from lack of being able to eat very much. Pain in all different joints and some tingling/numbness. At first also had some labored breathing when I went for a walk. Really dry cough and scratchy throat for months. Now I am having chest pain and not sure if it is my heart or panic type attacks. Still trying to figure out what is causing the uncomfortableness. My RA Dr. wants me to try Orencia next and hoping this will not cause me any problems. Please do not take this medication F 59 2.5 months

 1  Chron's Disease Death of my mother due to suspected drug induced HLH My mother started experiencing fevers of unknown origin after taking Humira for a couple of months. Fevers were initially low grade and controlled with Ibuprophen. After a few weeks, they started to spike daily to 104'F. She was admitted to hospital for about 5-weeks and was tested and scanned for everything imaginable. Tests kept coming back negative for any type of infections or cancers and doctors began to suspect HLH. Autopsy confirmed HLH as cause of death. Doctors feel, due to her circumstances, that Humira most likely triggered the activation of HLH. F 58

 5  AS I have experienced no side effects so far Within 12 hours of my first injection I have had no pain, no muscle spasms, have slept through the night for the first time in ages. I can jump out of chairs and bed and feel 20 years younger. I promise you I am not in the pay of any pharma company!! Additional benefits seem to be better complexion (according to my wife) more energy, my sinuses are better and bowel movements are more regular and better. I was truly amazed that after one injection I could feel like this again. I have looked at the other posts and my heart really goes out to them and I just hope that in time to come I don't experience any of these truly nasty side effects that some folk seem to have.

 4  Crohn's disease Possibly hair loss (might be from anesthesia instead). Slight pain at injection site (ice helps). Bruising (experience injecting will help). Possibly knee joint pain. Have had Crohn's since 1986 with surgery in '86, prednisone for years, horrible reaction to Imuran, prednisone for more years but overall good health (and diarrhea). Bowel obstruction in May with surgery - had adhesions, stricture and megacolon discovered in surgery without having had many symptoms and rare pain. I feel so much better now though with Humira. Food tastes wonderful; I still have to avoid a few things and I can tell I'll have to watch my weight! Hope I can continue doing well. F 62 1.5 months

And depression from it all! I was taking humira for severe crohns, it worked well for my crohns but the side effects were too much! From the beginning i told my doctors i had headaches and I felt i would be in a wheelchair within 10yrs. He told me there was no way humira could give me headaches and i was the only one complaining! I continued to take it up u til last december! I've had more than enough with the side effects of not being able to move because of a migraine or my hips or anything else that hurt! i barely eat because im so nautious. Everytime i went to dr office or grocery store i was sick a few hours later. Caught cold and flu everywhere i went. Even after being off humira for 9mths the side effects still linger! It is an AWFUL way to live, id rather do without the humira! Its just not worth risking whatever quality of life i have left! F 37 4 years

 4  Rheumatoid Arthritis My side effects have been hair thinning, broke in hives 1x, usually 2-3 days prior to next injection my joints become painful again & swollen where I'm giving myself the next injection a day ahead of time. Stinging @ injection site. Humira is kept in the refrigerator, was told to leave @ room temperature for 20-30 minutes prior to next injection to avoid excessive stinging. Check with your doc 1st on that though. This drug has helped tremendously as far as reducing debilitating pain & swollen joints throughout my body. I can now perform activities of daily living, whereas before I was so limited in ROM & in so much pain, I wanted to die. Improves complexion as well. F 62 1 years

 3  crohns disease & ulcerative colitis This is the second time on Humira, first was in 2008 but ended up going to resection, now on it again cause nothing else works, also on methotrexate, prednisone, B12, folic acid and flagyl! Pain in entire body (to many areas to name) headaches, dry cough, eye problems, hair loss, fatigue, nausea, numbness in left side knee and toes! I have told my dr about all symptoms but he says I'm fine, had a scope and crohns seem to be in remission but UC is active! I am not sure how much more I can take! Seems I feel worse on the humira than when I just deal with my crohns and UC!! Good luck everyone! Glad everyone here knows what eachother is going through! F 39 3 months

 4  RA Fatigue, daily nausea that comes and goes, very chapped lips,mood swings,alcohol sensitivity Humira has improved my RA symptoms. Much less swelling in my hands and feet and increased range of motion. I used to be stiff and sore for almost 2hrs after getting out of bed and this has greatly improved. I had terrible mouth sores from 2 doses of methotrexate and extreme hair loss from Arava. I am worried about long term use . F 49 2 months

 3  Psoriatic Arthritis Humira has changed my life in that I can walk and exercise without pain. Before Humira, there were times when I literally could not get out of bed. My husband would have to carry me to the bathroom during flare ups. However, I now get sick at the drop of a hat. I've had to take 3 rounds of antibiotics for sinus infections over the past 7 months. Also, I've had three other bad respiratory infections over the past year. I used to kick a cold in a few days but now they linger for weeks. I've missed more work this year being sick than I did back when I had flare ups. For now, I'm staying on Humira. However, if I keep getting sick, I'll have no other choice but to try another drug.
