If it's the pen(auto injector )
They make a loud click when you hit the button
We use the syringes which are much easier to control the rate of the medicine going in
It does burn (not in the U.K. Though they have the newer formula )
Waiting patiently for that in the US

Tiredness is a given
It's a sign the med is working
Some get a rash as the injection site
Ds has had that more than once
But no issues
You can ice before and after
You may also see a small bruise - depends on where you inject
Again not an issue
Good luck

I am getting my Humira today and my nurse comes tomorrow to do the first injections with me. I am nervous about it but hope it works.

I talked to my dr. today and I have inflammation and colitis but not strictures. She put me at moderate right now based on my colonoscopy and endoscopy.

I feel lucky as my symptoms have been mild to moderate for the past few weeks. Only one major flareup. It took so long for me to be diagnosed as I had not the usual symptoms and everyone put it that I was just an anxiety ridden person and that was causing my acid reflux and bloating.

Additionally, I am lucky as right now I do not have an issue with foods. I seem to be able to eat anything when I am not nauseous and can actually eat. The nausea comes and goes as does the bloating and it does not matter what I eat it is still there.

I have come to realize that I need to take each day and live it to the fullest as my symptoms may get worse but hopefully better.

So, how are you doing? Tired? Relieved? How do you feel about doing the injections by yourself now?

My blood work finally came back (huge Quest screwup) so I'm hoping to start next week. Fingers crossed!

Started last Friday and I already feel some improvement. Is that possible or do you think it's psychological? I'm ok with either...

Anyone had indigestion /acid reflux as a side effect? I started humira beginning of June and a month later started having really bad indigestion and acid reflux, which I never really had an issue before. Anyone?
