Has anyone else developed an allergic rash with biologic meds?

Has anyone else developed an allergic rash with biologic meds?

I had to go off of Humira after 7 months of use because I suddenly developed hives. I have been on Remicade for 6 months and have started to get red bumps mostly on my face that are very itchy. I don't want to go off of my medication again, but being itchy every day is unpleasant. My P.A. at rhuemetologist office seems clueless about what to do.

Is this typical with having this problem?

Is this typical with having this problem?

Hey all. Does this look typical for having this disease? I feel as if I am progressing and I'm only 30. However, I served as a U.S. Marine. But the VA doesn't seem to care. Nor will they give me answers. This pic is of an MRI about 5 years ago. I know I have progressed. It is getting hard to walk. It has messed with my head because I am only 30. And I can't run and gun like I used to. I am having a hard time adjusting.

Does anyone relate to having the most rarest Mental Personality called (INFJ?) Google it and some will be surprised that finally they have locked in a name for what I have been doing my whole life. Now I can rest easy. Introversion (I), Intuition (N), Feeling (F), Judgment (J).
Please watch YouTube videos about this. It just feels good to have a name for it and I finally found others… read more
