Long story short, I was recently diagnosed with JRA. I'm taking MTX weekly and have just started an injection, Humira. I just wanted to ask if anyone on here has taken it before.
I had my first injection last Saturday, and the pain from the injection was horrible, I was crying like a baby.

Just curious to see if anyone has taken this before, thanks
Jamie

Jamielynn, I'm so sorry to hear about your JRA, as if you don't have enough to contend with ...

I'm afraid I don't know anything about the medication you're having, but it sounds awful - I just hope it helps so that it was worth it?

Hi jamielynn, I'm really sorry to hear that the injection was horrible. Hopefully it will be well worth it :squeeze:

Hey Thanx! I'm actually getting along without that much pain. I used to have to wear sandals all the time because whenever I wore shoes my feet would completely swell :(. But I'm excited because I just got really cool shoes- that I can actually wear!
I'm not looking forward to my next injection, Saturday, but I will manage.
