  • I have had this lock for four days now since the very day I had my HUMIRA injection. It started mildly, then disappeared for some hours with what I thought was the effect of NSAID (ibuprofen) but now it is in full force and nothing seems to easy the pain. I am starving as it is almost impossible to eat any solids and I can't even pry/force my mouth open.
