I've been on Humira now for 14 months. For the first couple months or so after starting Humira, I had various symptoms---overall body aches, joint pain, fatigue, night sweats etc. Over time, however, the symptoms subsided. Currently, I have no bad side effects from the Humira, except for the first few days after the injection ~ fatigued, overall body aches, joint aches. But after a few days, this all goes away.
Of course everyone is different! Sometimes it's difficult to know whether it's just your body getting used to the medication, OR if you're having a hypersensitivity/allergic reaction. Always best to check with your doctor.
