I get bruises at new joints that are affected by flare. Slight, bruise looking brownish blue. Be very careful how you use your fingers so you do not damage them.
Are you taking NSAIDs? Do you have a bit of steriods? It can take a couple doses for Humira to help. Once your fingers are damaged, there is no fixing. Do not carry anything with your fingers, like grocery bags etc. Do not wring anything out like wash cloth and esp (because people recommend it) do not squeeze a small ball.
Actema IV once a month (with pre loading for allergic reaction), Cymbalta x1 daily, Arava 20mg daily. Diagnosed with AS in 2004, suffered undiagnosed since 1982.
