I started taking Humira last summer. It was great, my back pain (almost) disappeared . I started to realize how much my back pain had actually affected my life. I really liked the Humira. At first I had some side effects like hair loss and bruising but that got better after a month or so. But then it all got worse and worse. It was like I had a constant cold. I got the flu shot and had the worst flu of my life. This spring I started to get more and more fatigued. They did lots oflood work, x rays and all kinds of tests. I had a severe vitamin d deficiency and fit supplements. It got better for some weeks but then it got even worse. One day i woke up with chest pain. I thought it was gastric reflux or something first. Atvdinner time I couldn't breathe so I went to the ER. Now I had fluid in the lungs, around the heart and my lungs was covered with something they didn't know what it was. They thought it was cancer and I was hospitalized. After a few days my breathing got better and better and they said it was a side effect of humira. That was in June and I haven't been on humors since then.
Now my back pain hurts again and the fatigue is really bad. I've just got informed that I'll start taking embark instead if humira.
Has anyone been on both of these drugs and noticed any differences between them?
I'm afraid I'll get sick again.
