Humira Update and the Sed Rate Saga
Guess what: they were right. No, I am NOT going to show you pictures of that injection (perhaps I’m a little self-conscious about showing myself squeezing together belly fat, okay). I’m not sure if it was just that it’s easier in the stomach or if this pen was just better than the first, but it did not lurch like the first one, nor did it hurt quite so much. The strange thing about this injection was that it actually stung more afterwards than while the medicine was going in. At any rate, I think I’m going to go for the stomach again for injection number three next week. I’ve also heard a lot of other patients say that 1) The Humira pen is one of (if not THE) worst auto-injectors out there, and 2) pre-filled syringes hurt way less than the pen, and it’s nice because you can control the flow. I’m going to give the pen a few more goes, and if I’m not comfortable with it, I’ll be asking for a switch to syringes.
