I have RA & have been taking Humira injections, has anyone had any experience on it?   I recently got really sick with a bad cold/flu & hadn't been sick like that since I was 20.  I want to stop doing these injections with Humira.

I'm trying to eat healthy with blueberries, cherries, organic hot teas & turmeric & have cut out inflammatory foods.

would appreciate your thoughts

I take a CBD oil. Anything that has to be digested looses 50% of potency when it goes to your stomach. I love what I use. If you want info let me know. I swear, I would not be functioning without it

@Coco1933 I have been taking CBD oil for two years now. It helps so much. I am having a hard time navigating this sight. If you want info let me know.

@rtr097u1 I have also heard that it isn’t good. Try CBD. I have been using for 2 years

I take methotrexate injections once a week. I was on plaquenil but it wasnt doing much.  The methotrexate makes me I'll but I do have nausea pills to take if necessary.  I see a progression with my joints meaning, they hurt more and arent as easily usable. This is my 3 injection and I know it'll take time to see results.  Its painful and it's tough but I'm trying to stay positive.

I have tried the CBD oil and it didn't help my symptoms. I also noticed that it affected my mind. It made me care less about everything including work, housework, hygiene, socializing.  I took it for about 4 months to give it a chance. 

I have also tried turmeric, fish oil, pre and pro biotics, healthy eating, etc... I went to a 20 day healthy lifestyle center in the Black Hills. We ate vegan and gluten free, and no sugar. 

I will have to say that I lost weight, had more energy, caught the severe  cold that was going around but got over it in 3 days so my immune system was good. But all these things did not stop the progression of my RA.

Silly Chick, CBD does not make you tired. What you described sounds like marijuana. If you take a pure brand like I do, it helps. CBD has 20-40% more anti inflammatory agents than Advil or other O’Hara pain relievers . Vitamins A, B’s, D and several omegas. You had some bad stuff.... anyway, it helps me immensely. Good luck and take care of yourself♥️

I'm having what I can only describe as Euphoria today. I started feeling really good on Thursday and today I'm just euphoric. This is my fourth week now of taking 5 pills of methotrexate and I think they must be helping. My joints feel a lot better and much of the pain is gone. I still have one hip that is inflamed but it is doing much much better. Do you think I'm euphoric as a side effect or just because I feel so good after feeling lousy for so long? Has anyone else experienced this?
