Knock on wood it continues to work for me, but Humira has greatly improved my life. I wish I had been on it decades ago. It's impossible to ascribe which part of my improvement is Humira and which is other factors, but for example, I no longer get the awful ribcage and scapula pain I used to get.

Been on it for two years, I know it is working. I have had AS for 37 years (diagnosed!) so I know it works.

Want to add a suggestion to go for the syringe, not the injector pen. Controlling the flow of medication drastically reduces the amount of pain. And I never thought I could inject myself.

1981 - Hip/knee problems led to early, correct AS diagnosis (amazingly!).
1990's -Doctor mistakenly diagnosed me with Psoriatic Arthritis. Bad doctor!
2000's - Increasingly problematic "sciatica". Guffaw.
2011 - Diagnosed with end-stage right hip arthritis.
2012 - Right HSR.
2013 - Partially torn Achilles.
2014 - Left HSR.
2016 - Re-diagnosis of AS, Prescribed Humira. Achilles surgery followed by subsequent re-tear.
2018 (Now). Doing pretty good. Humira working, Achilles finally better.

Humira has made a real difference for me. I can't tell you the last time I used my heating pad. I used to use it almost every day. And Humira is the only thing that helped with the fatigue. I no longer need naps and just feel better in general.

I have been on Humira for 20 months and it has worked wonders for me from day 1. I regret not starting it earlier. I was fearful of the potential side affects. Since starting I have had a bout of bronchitis, a cold and a viral infection, however over the last year I havent caught anything.
