Ulceritive Colitis & Enteropathic Arthritis - humira?

Posted by royal35 @royal35, Jan 27, 2019

I'm curious to know if anyone has been diagnosed with enteropathic arthritis and used Humira with any success? I've been on Humira for almost 2 years and only get some relief. UC symptoms are in check but joint pain and fatigue are only reduced by maybe 50%. Somehow also developed lichen planus while on Humira (not oral – just skin).

Hello @royal35, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I don't have any experience with Humira to share but did find some information that may be helpful.
