It has been a while since I last blogged on here, for that I do apologise.

There have been a few developments since I last wrote in terms of my health. Mostly to do with the Hidradenitis Suppurativa and then also my back. My back has been playing up rather a lot in recent months.

Last week I struggled on a walk that I had done many a time. When I mean struggle I mean I was in tears within moments. At the first possible opportunity I saw my GP. I am unable to take NSAIDs, or anti-inflammatories, due to my Crohns Disease. As I was already on morphine tablets as well as other medications I had no choice but to take diazepam. These are working, they only work when am taking it steady and not walking for more than 10 metres at once. I have to stop for a break even if going to the supermarket down the road, this was a 2-3 minute walk before now – it takes me 3 times as long. I have been referred to yet another specialist, I will of course keep you updated with regards to this.

As for the HS, well I saw my specialist this past weekend. I have been told I can restart the Humira. I shall have to have the obligatory lung xray as well as yet another blood test. I did have the first injection this week so that it can start to do what it does best. I have posted a link about what Humira is and what it is used for. If you do have any questions then please feel free to ask or share your experience with Humira, both good and bad.
