Humira and numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Humira and numbness


686769 tn?1236275731 Has anyone been on Humira and what kind of result did you have? Any side effects? I am on lots of meds which are not decreasing the pain. My doctor wants to put me on Humira and I was wondering if anyone out there has had any success with this drug. I am desperate to NOT be in pain anymore. Help...
Avatar f tn Hi! Yes, Humira can cause tingling and numbness in both legs and hands, and weakness of legs. Other than Humia, similar symptoms can be seen in vit B12 deficiency, diabetes, hypothyroidism and lupus. However, since you are on Humira, you must consult your doctor (as you have) and stress on the need to change the dose or shift to other medications. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn He then sent me to a cardiologist.....and a neurologist. I had an MRI of the brain and neck with Constrast and the MRI showed nothing, no evidence of stroke ...My Cardiologist did a TEE (which I will never have again since i was WIDE awake! The TEE confirmed the echocardiogram to show the hole. Both specialists are undecided as to close the hole. Neurologist says it's caused by teeth grinding as for the reason for the numbness.
Avatar f tn I have been treated for rheumatoid arthritis with Humira for 7 months including a combination of Humira and methotrexate for the past 2 months. I also take 5mg of prednisone, and 6 Azulfadine tablets each day. I was taking Humira once every fourteen days and I am on 15mg of methotrexate a week. About a month ago, I started experiencing numbness in my toes and feet. I mentioned it to my rheumatologist but she wasn't concerned and simply told me it wasn't rheumatoid arthritis.
Avatar f tn 29, 2009 - Rheumatoid arthritis patients who take the biologic drugs Remicade, Humira, and Enbrel do not appear to have an increased risk for developing cancer in the first few years of use, researchers in Sweden report. The study is one of the largest and longest population-based investigations ever into the cancer-causing potential of the drugs, known as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors.
Avatar n tn I feel like I have been experiencing some muscle tension in my arms and legs from the Humira and I wonder whether it is the Humira that is causing my neck and head problems. I went through a thorough neuro exam last week. I had high blood pressure -- which is not normal for me -- although they did not reveal my numbers. There were no significant findings on the physical exam that I know of, but I was sent for a CT Scan. I am awaiting the results of the Scan.
Avatar f tn It is used to help many things and has a money back guarantee it also has testimonials of people who have taken it my husband has suffered for many years with chron's and we are fixing to order this item. Humira is so scarry and has so many bad side affects we thought we would give this a try. I hope this helps you. God Bless.
511671 tn?1214151700 probably a bit more than I could ever admit to. Working full time plus and trying to raise two kids - currently 4 and 7. Thankfull for my wonderful husband of nearly 10 years.
Avatar n tn I felt very sick which traveled up my left arm into the side of my head and pain into the left temple into my eye which started twitching. The numbness has really never left except to say that it feels asleep and waking up. The eye twitching has gotten better but it's a twitching that circles the entire left eye. My doctor ran tests echocardiogram, stress test, ultasound of the artieries in my neck. The echo showed a hole in betweeen the two chambers of my heart.
Avatar f tn I am on Humira and methotrexate.
Avatar f tn I have Raynauds's and my hands have been colder and bluer than usual and at times I have some numbness and tingling to a couple of fingers. My left wrist is becoming more inflamed. My rheumy said I could start my humira in a week and also start back on my mtx because of the shingles. I listed dr visit on my tracker because I was in contact with him for advice onmy treatment and meds.
Avatar f tn Have had a progression of symptoms since February with numbness and tingling in left hand and foot to increased pain in neck and back, with neck pain being more severe right now. Have seen GP, 2 Neurologists, Orthopedist, Rheumatologist, Chiropractor. Have had blood work, Lumbar and Cervical spine MRI, Brain MRI, urinalysis, nerve conduction study, and most recently Echocardiogram. Without boring you with all the details, I am trying to make a decision about surgery...on my cervical spine.
Avatar f tn Now I have the same tingling and numbness mostly on my left, but on my right as well. With the tingling I also get goosebumps, but only unilaterally, on the arm experiencing the symptoms. I also have burning fingertip sensation and during my neuro exam, they found I was positive for L'Hermittes sign. and was experiencing decreased sensation on my left side. My left arm was also noticeably weaker and I They're going to MRI me next week and see if I have any new lesions.
Avatar m tn I am no longer having convulsions and my lower back pain is greatly relieved. I do still have the numbness and shooting pains in my legs, but overall, I have had a lot of success. I have been on this amazing drug for about 3 months and I love it. It took a couple of weeks to work, but it was worth the wait. Apparently the drug blocks the pain pathway. The only noticeable side effect that I have experienced is some hair loss. I am not balding by any means.
18894824 tn?1469468963 There was the numbness and tingling like when your legs are asleep, but then my legs also felt extremely heavy with severe Charlie horses. We called the doctor and they had me take 40mg of prednisone and benadryl. I fell asleep and the pain subsided slightly but when I woke up I was so stiff I couldn't get out of bed or walk. The pain came back later that day, so I went to the ER and they gave me pain meds and also two more steroid shots.
Avatar f tn I have Anklyosing spondilities and am on Humira bi-weekly. On my pervious two MRI's they have shown an aggressive hemangioma tumor surrounding my L2. I believe that this tumor is causing numbness to the point of pain on my right thigh. My concern is how will this hemangioma effect my anklyosing spondilites and considering how much it had grown in one year should I be concerned or believe the doctors that it will be okay.
Avatar n tn I've found some relief with Humira and Nirtriptyline. The Humira controls the inflammation and the Nortriptyline helps with nerve pain, being able to sleep better, and depression. I'm wondering if serotonin and norepinephrine being out of whack is responsible for a lot of pain. It's good to get checked out by a rheumatologist because if you do have rheumatoid arthritis, there are meds that help to slow down the damage.
459853 tn?1283144114 I am now on Plaquenil and Methotrexate, and will be starting Humira or Remicade in Feb. if the heat doesn't leave my joints (caused by Sjogrens). Last night I was in so much pain I didn't think I was going to ever fall asleep. I could barely move my arm or squeeze my fingers into a fist. The Humira and Remicade are IV or Injections, and are supposed to be a TNF blocker. We'll see. But...those meds will CAUSE a malar rash on a person's face SOMETIMES.
Avatar f tn I have psoriatic arthrits, fibro, and august, i got numbness in my left lower leg. A month later, I am numb from my neck to my toes, and cant work. Now, 5 months later, I still have numbness, walking is very difficult, can barely use my hands due to cramping, muscle twitches, spasms, tremors, urinary and bowel problems( due to numbness factor)....doc says I have all the classic symptoms of MS, but 4 mri's of back and brain, spinal tap, emg, evoked response....all show NO MS!!
Avatar n tn These include cognitive behavior therapy, creams containing coal tar, dithranol (anthralin), corticosteroids like desoximetasone, fluocinonide, vitamin D3 analogues and retinoids and phototherapy and photochemotherapy. Psoriasis that is resistant to topical treatment and phototherapy is treated by medications that are taken internally by pill or injection. The three main traditional systemic treatments are methotrexate, cyclosporine and retinoids.
Avatar f tn I know that tingling, numbness, l'hermittes sign and burning sensations aren't dangerous. But they're sitll petrifying and I'd rather have the diagnosis, so the doctors will finally do something about it. Being in limbo is awful. I just want to know or have a good idea that they'll see lesions again.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with sever anemia and later Crohn's. The medications , aziothioprine and humira, are helping to control the Crohn's. Which brings me to the Chiari. I have still suffered all this time with the sporadic symptoms of headache, weakness, fatigue, double vision, and numbness. Which had increases in size of coverage. All this I, and doctors blamed on continued anemia and low b12 which have all been testing normal for about 3 yrs.
Avatar m tn My GI doctor suggested Humira, but some of the side effects it could cause I already have, like tingling and numbness, and shortness of breath because I also have IST a form of Dysautonomia. The doctor said that the Crohns hasnt progressed into a serious case yet and that if I wanted to wait before changing treatments I could. She is woried though because I am losing weight while exercising and eating at least 5000 calories a day.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 23 years old and am currently in a flare up that started back in November 2009. I have tried Mesalamine, Prednisone, 6MP, Remicade, and am currently taking Humira and Methotrexate once a week. I feel like my life has been taken away from me. I was studying abroad for a master's degree when the flare up set in and decided to fly home to my parents to get proper health care and support.

572651 tn?1333939396 this is a great list of questions - I'll see how many I can get answered tomorrow.
Avatar n tn And I'm relieved to discover there is a connection between the two. Along with humira (and now celebrex) I take cod liver oil, spirulina, pro biotics, zinc, magnesium orotate. I make sure I eat lots of healthy, grass fed red meat and well cooked vegetables. Don't fall for the 'raw is best' line, hard enough for any body to absorb nutrients from raw veg without a rumen let alone us with absorprtion problems.
Avatar n tn I went to sleep as soon as I got home, but early this morning the thought came to me that this could be MS. I also had an episode of pins and needles and numbness in both arms the other day and right as I type this. It has happened before. So, we have: 1. Vertigo/dizziness of 6 months duration 2. Pain in right side (perhaps referring to my hip, OR possibly a lesion in my hip?) of 6 months duration. Could this be MS HUG? 3. A known probable lesion in my brain (I think R.
