Psoriatic Arthritis + humira = working?

Aug 22, 2015 2:33 PM

I'm 17 and was diagnosed with juvenile psoriatic arthritis half a year ago. It took them half a year to figure it out too. I am on both Humira and Methotrexate and painkillers I was supposed to be off of months ago. I am also developing new symptoms like clogged ears when I do cardio. Worsening rib cage pain, SI joint pain, and I think my neck, jaw, and toes are becoming affected. I have shoulder dystrophy that pinches nerves and blood vessels making it impossible to write because my hand is swollen. I also have fibromyalgia. My doctor doesn't want to switch me from Humira but I'm not sure if it's working. Has anyone else had issues with humira or found a method to controlling all the pain and symptoms?
