I am new here! I have Lupus, RA, FIBRO and Raynaud's, 42 yo, 2 kids 9 & 11 (my angels!) and diagnosed x 7 yrs. Ive tried nearly every med out there - still severe pain, fatigue x3, fog, joint & muscle pain/damage, reflux fro MEDS -had GI bleed almost killed me from ulcers that broke open! So many other things - too many to name!
I am just very curious about any success w biologicals like Humira??? Thx!!View Thread
Thank you for replying. As you can see by the timing of my response, I certainly DO have a lot going on and I am not managing it very well! -83D-E14
Right now I have stomach flu so my Humira is on hold!
Thx again! AngelinaView Thread

I realize its been a year but I'm new to this site and saw tour post and lights flashed!! I too had fertility probs & I insisted (ok DEMANDED) that my on/gun do progesterone tests the minute I got preg. And guess what? Bottomed out both times 'yes I would've miscarried both wothout a doubt! DR asked me how I knew - I'm a pharmacist and I realllllly did my HW bc I knew I was at risk to miscarry (I had severe endometriosis ....also autoimmune which affects that too)!! I hope u have not given up!!
My heart is w you, 100%!!!View Thread
Hi Angie -I am Angelina! So sorry to hear all u have been thru! Ironically it sounds alot like mine - same issue w my Ana's initially very high then it dropped off but symptoms worsened to point that we r trying Humira now (very scary!)!!! Have u ever tested for MS??? I am tested every few years bc symptoms r overlapping. Just a thought - I don't mean to scare u, ok?!
Hang in there - idk how I am!!View Thread
