Humira- Neurological side effects - please help with my anxiety

Looking for someone to tell me some promising news as I am very nervous. For those that experienced neurological side effects (numbness and tingling)how long did it take for them to go away? I have read it could take from 4-6 months for the Humira to be out of your body. It has been about 3 months since my last injection and Iím still feeling it, although it has gotten better to some extent. I did get an MRI but my neurologist basically says itís an unknown and we have to wait and see what happens.

Positive thoughts are appreciated. I think I read too much scary stuff. Thanks.

You have my support. I think odds are that if you've seen improvement that's actually really good news. Try not to worry. I had quite a few nerves severed from surgeries that took a long time to heal, but most improved substantially over time and some are almost like new again. I know it's not really the same situation, but it was quite scary for me to lose feeling somewhere or to experience nerve pain and not know if it would get better. I feel like I can relate to how you feel. Hopefully things will become much more normal for you soon. Hang in there.
