I gave my forth shot today, and I've noticed that my legs are aching, and the pain in my ileum area has worsened.
Has anyone else had this happen. Plus I'm noticing a very very slight tightness around my throat area, not enough
to make me worry, but it's still there....

I think you should call your doc right away and let him/her know.

Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis July 2007

Hi Guys, I called the nurse at Humira, she felt that because the reaction is so slight that I probably don't have much to
worry about. Should it worsen within the next 24 hrs, I should call the doctor.

I did see my PCP yesterday and told her that I'd been getting more joint pain and lethargy. So I have to get blood work
done to check for serum sickness. There's a whole bunch of tests on the order. So I guess she's taking this seriously.
It will be a shame if this doesn't work just like Remicade, as I'm left with so little choice...

Vicky,

I am so glad your doctor is taking this seriously.  I hope the outcome is good but it is best to get checked out.  I will say a prayer for you.
Take care of you.
