Just started Humira

Well, today my GI had me come in today for my initial loading dose of Humira. I was nervous as anything before getting the injections because I wasn't really sure about how painful they would be, etc. The nurse who assisted me was great. She administered the first two injections to me in my thigh and then had me administer the last two myself. I have to say, I was really worried before hand, however they were not as bad as I was expecting them to be. It stung a little bit initially, but that only lasted about 10-15 seconds, mostly while the medication was going in. Looking forward to seeing if it works, but so far so good. I'm really excited about the possibilities of the future!!!
