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.
