I would call your Doctor and let them know. They will ask you if you have a fever, if there is color to your sputum etc. Based on that they may want you to go in to see them or they may just call in a script if they think you need one.

It could be a reaction to the Humira.

My son had a strong flu-like reaction to his 2nd round of Humira and then had a milder version for months until we added benadryl and tylenol 30 minutes before his shot. We also did the shot just before bed and he slept through the worst of the symptoms.
son now 14 1/2, dx CD age 10; current meds: MTX and omeprazole; previous tmts: pred, 6-MP, Humira, entocort, GMCS, exclusive enteral feeds, pentasa, mesalamine enemas, cipro, flagyl, many topical treatments for perianal disease
