Hello Everyone, I have never been in a group and written my words down like this before, for all to see. . So, I am not sure what I will say. I can tell you I have been on methadone for 23 years,( I HATE IT!!!) and I indeed have degenerative joint disease, as well as degenerative disc disease and scoliosis, stenosis, my shoulder, hips, knees, wrists are all messed up and now, a MRI of my neck. I know I worked very all my work life, but, something is up. And I am really worried and scared for myself. "Humana". They really don't care if I live or die. Either does Medicare. It is very depressing, the insurance. The doctors the pharma corporations and insurance companies are all in bed together. That is why it is proclaimed, the Medicare system is BROKEN AND CORRUPT!!! But, back to the methadone they so freely prescribe. I do believe the methadone is eating my bones away. When I have asked the doctors, they just deny any bone degeneration from the methadone. For years, they have denied that. They are all in the same boat and the doctors, are all indoctrinated. Which, of course, they don't want to hear, at all. I don't know what to do about my bones. I have told my doctor that it feels like I have Bone Cancer. Her response was, my BLOOD doesn't show any cancer. I do have osteoporosis, big time. They just think THEY DO NO HARM I did not think I would write this long. I am so sorry for all of you that are suffering. AND, possibly, Needlessly. I hate to see anybody suffer, it bothers me....deep. So, this is my introduction....... Hello to all my fellow suffers....I wish you well, I wish you better. Bye, Marilyn I am hesitant to click that button......."Join the group" Never joined a group before. So........Here goes............
I started taking Humira In 2010 after many years of trying out drugs for sero negative rheumatoid arthritis. Along with prednisolone I tried every DMARD going. Some of them had hideous side effects and others just didn't work. I was on Humira for less than six months and after noticing excessive bruising I was sent to a specialist and diagnosed with Acquired Haemophilia A with inhibitors. My symptoms caused me to end up in hospital nearly every week for days due to internal and external bleeding and at my worst, ended up in intensive care for over a week due to a bleed in my oesophagus which was life threatening. I had acquired haemophilia for 5 years and have just been cleared. Humira hasn't been on the market long enough to know it's real side effects so just bear this in mind when starting a new drug. I was the 'one in a million' for this to happen to. I am female, aged 40 so it can happen to women and not just men as it states in the statistics.
