I've been putting on weight with being on Enbrel and now Humira, for my Rheumatoid Arthritis. Can anyone else say that that has happened to them? Although I do feel that I want to eat all the time and I never had this much of an appetite before the biologics, with even being on Prednisone. Can it be that I have more time on my hands too with not being able to do alot because of the pain? I try to eat healthy with lean protein, freggies, my water and I still feel hungry. All the time. I exercise all I can on my recumbent bike, about 35-40 min/day. I'm getting frustrated with these biologics not wanting to work with me and are hoping that once Spring comes, Humira will have kicked in too and I can really walk more and because of being able to do that, I'll be able to lose weight once again! I guess I just needed to vent.....once again! Life is not very easy at this point in my life!
ps.......I wrote this on the RA team and thought I could write it here too and reach my SP buddies this way also! Thanks for listening! I will get a handle on this but in the meantime............I need you all more than ever!
