I'm 23 years old and was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and still under suspicion of Crohn's Disease. I've been on Medrol 24mg for about a month, also prednisone before the Medrol, but it didn't work very well. Two days ago I was supposed to start Humira but got very sick with a fever 100.4, awful nausea, no appetite whats so ever, completely black stools and abdominal pain. My doc sent me to the ER, and my white blood cell count was elevated to 15,000. They wanted to let me go home but I was so sick that I asked them to admit me, and they did. They ran a few other tests but nothing special, and the next morning the white blood cell count was 19,000 (that was just a 5-6 hour difference in between two tests). Today it's back at 15,000 but the doc had no explanation for its rising and he let me go home. My GI said that it's probably from the steroid, though 5 days ago my blood was completely normal. Also my Rheumatologist said it's too high for it to be a steroid effect. I anyways got a Humira shot today, but still concerned about how I'm feeling and my blood count. Have anyone ever experienced something like that?

Thanks for your help!
