Hi ghostride,
Welcome to KA good to meet you. I was on Humira for 6 months but it didn't agree with me so I came of don't take any drugs now apart from pain killers.

It is difficult with AS because we are all different some are severe and some people are mild. Have you had MRI scans to see how bad things are. In England you have to try every thing else before you can get put on Humira.
How long have you been suffering before Diagnosis.

Hi ghostride.

I've never been on Humira so have nothing to contribute on that topic, I'm afraid. I just wanted to welcome you to KA. Hope you get as much out of it as I do.

If you only have early signs of fusion then that's a good time to start Humira to help prevent any more damage.

Hi Ghostride,

I have been on Humira for 3 years next month. It has worked very well for me. It took at least 3 months for it to start working once I began taking it but once it started to work there was no looking back. I have done amazing on it. Hope it works as well for you.

Humira's been a god-send for me! I am lucky that it started working within days (I couldn't get out of bed without assistance before Humira . . . four days later I got out of bed easily . . .)

I've been on Humira for 2 years now (40 mg auto-injection every two weeks). I occasionally supplement near the end of the two week period with Naproxen.
