From this study (2 days ago):
Was on Humira from October 2008 to May 2013. It wasn't effective anymore, the Sed rate was high, Started Enbrel May 2013 til present (Aug. 2014).
From this study (6 days ago):
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 (2 weeks 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.
