Hi everyone!!! I was diagnosed with AS 4 months ago after 9 months of waking up at 3am every morning with Thoracic stiffness and aches. A Rheumatologist diagnosed me and administered Humira. I have been pain free for 4 months.

- Humira: my experience
I have had some form of arthritis probably since birth. My father and maternal grandfather had some form of arthritis. I began to realize pain in both ankles if I stood or walked too long.
I began taking many NSAIDs when I was around 22. I've done gold, prednisone (twice), plaquenil, butazoidin, sulfasalazine, etc. My best results came with methotrexate after I got cellulitis in my knee (scratch it while kayaking in the summer, fiberglass boat). It dropped my sed rate from over 100 to 35 or so within a few months. I continued with MTX from 1977 to 2000 when my MD suggested Enbrel and stopping MTX. That was a VERY bad decision. Enbrel appeared to mask the disease for a few years. I had my left MCP replaced in 2004, my right heel debrided in 2010, and both my TMJs replaced in 2012. I strongly believe that if I had kept with the MTX it would have delayed those changes. Additionally, in 2011 I was in a bus crash returning from RAGBRAI. I got knocked out from three to six minutes. I had a nasty concussion that lasted 2+ years. Towards the end of the third year post accident I started exercising more aggressively. After doing several 40, 50, and 60 miles rides, I took a leisurely 50 mile ride around Boston at night. Two days later I had a spinal edema. So much for biking and other active sports! :-(
I have continued with MTX. Late 2013 my MD increased my MTX to .8/week. I had been taking .6/week. I stopped taking Enbrel and switched to Humira in early 2014. I took it for a few months before my doc and I realized it was not doing any better than Enbrel. I tried Humira for three months but it did not seem to work any better than Enbrel. In early June I stopped Humira and waited a few weeks before I started Otezla. I stopped Oterzla on 9/15/14 because it made me depressed and allowed my morning stiffness to get much worse.
I started prednisone again from the start of July. By mid-August I told my MD that I was screaming louder than I ever had; my dog was very startled. I stopped it gradually over the next two weeks. Meanwhile, the Otezla made me feel awful.
My MD is going to get me onto another injectable that I take monthly. I forget its name.

From this study (5 days ago):
I have been on this drug for 2 years now at least straight with the add-back therapy (Estrace 1MG and Apo-Medroxy 2.5 MG) that is supposed to protect me from osteoporosis allowing me to stay on the drug lupron longer then a year as per a new study my gynecologist had recommended for me. This summer have found out I now have a deteriorated disk in my back,lost a tooth and now just today (Dec. 29, 2014) have a tooth that is after cracking for no reason!!!! I ate nothing hard! My bone density is showing a risk for osteoporosis and I am only 40! On the positive side it has reduced my pain so I have a quality of life instead of pain in my abdomen 24/7 but now I have permanent damage to my back and don't have the money to repair my tooth so could have to get another pulled, to add to it all!It is my jaw teeth so now how will i eat! More studies have to go into this drug!
Hyperacusis woman on Jan, 1, 2015:
If you are discussing temazepam, then, yes, temazepam is known to cause bruxism during sleep. I too had a cracked tooth because of temazepam. I had to get a post and a cap (about $5,000) to replace a virgin tooth (i.e., no previous damage). If you use temazepam, I urge you to get a mouth guard made by a dentist. Regarding the back, I had an MRI showing two damaged back vertebrae after being on temazepam for three years. I don't know if temazepam played a role. I'm a woman in a profession who is in her mid-to-late 40s and who was physically fit and active. I was on temazepam for 4 years total. I don't recommend the drug, as it made me depressed and irritable. (I have no history of psych problems; I am cursed with hyperacusis.)
From this study (2 weeks ago):
2 days after 1st injection , and 8 days after second injection, very severe nausea and vomiting. Severe for about 3 days then just nausea , but quite unpleasant.
