  • 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.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I am in menopause and no longer experience hot flashes. I have very low heat tolerance and often am feeling uncomfortably hot. I awake every night around 4:00 am and am drenched in sweat even tho I sleep under 2 fans in addition to AC. It takes some time to get cooled off enough to fall back to sleep. The mattress I sleep on is a TempuraPedic and I know this causes heat reflection. I have had this mattress for 7 years, tho, but have only been experiencing these heat episodes for approximately 1 year. Please share your opinion. I have a feeling my meds are combining to cause these heat attacks. Thank you.
