Hey everybody...

I've been on Humira for about 11 months now. After three months I noticed that from time to time I cough a lot without being sick of anything like that. It would usually last for a day or two after receiving Humira. I am on prednisone each time I receive Humira for 4 days. I didn't give it that much though, I knew cough could happen on Humira.

about a week ago I started feeling some kind of pressure in my lungs and thought I was going to get a cold or something but that didn't happen. It's a really strange feeling to describe. I feel like coughing but when I try to cough on purpose it just doesn't take away the feeling. I don't have trouble walking, I don't breathe heavy. I just feel this pressure and sometimes it gets even painful a little bit. I have no idea why that happens. I'm due to get Humira tomorrow and I'm afraid this problem will get worse. I even thought the steroids I take prior Humira would help but i don't feel any better today after I took them.

Thanks for answering in advance :)
