So… yeah. Things are better, but it’s very slow. Sometimes barely perceptible, sometimes even seems worse for a day or two.
I had a long day yesterday and my terrible second toe was swollen and reddish again. My whole ankle on the other side was swollen and puffy. I know that I have to be patient and realistic, because that leg has a lot of issues. One of which is that it seems to be partially paralyzed, but I didn’t realize that because it was immobilized in a walking boot. I have an appointment with a neurologist but of course it’s not for weeks, so in the meanwhile I’m supposed to add in gentle movement (swimming and recumbent bike) and start PT in two weeks.
In general, from the week prior to starting Humira to now, things are better and I’m grateful for that.
