I am not on Humira but have had problems with chest pains from gallstones, and also from a flare that involves my esophagus. Are these pains like waves of spasms that come and go or are they more like a steady burn? Could be Gerd also. I wouldn't let this go too long without medical attention!Do you notice these pains after a heavy meal?
Lots of questions, I know...but no answers...I'm sorry....hopefully someone else will be able to relate more closely and be along real shortly.
Good luck....hope you are feeling better soon!

Hi Just wondering how you are doing now. I am not on Hum. but have had some chest pain too it usually doesn't last long but they are worrisome to me. Let me us know if you find out what is causing them .Do they get releaved when you take an antiacid? I know mine do and I have bad gerd so figure that is what is causing mine. It has been bad since I started the pred. for me. Don't know your age but I might get it checked out mine usually don't last long and you have had yours for a couple of days. lol gail

well i went to sleep lastnight and i woke up with no chest pains. I did have a pretty heavy meal before sitting down, but im not sure if thats the cause. and the antiacids thing i didnt try just because the dr said anything like that wouldnt be good for me. It felt like burning but it would get worse then back off, and so on. Im going to the dr tomorrow! by the way what is gerd?

Hi Gerd is acid reflux that comes up the esphagus and I get it at night when I am trying to sleep I take pariet for it but still have trouble with it .I have to not eat after supper and especially not sweets which really gets it going. The prednisone has started that problem and lots of people here have it with the pred. I also have chest pains that started since the pred. so lots of difficulty with the pred. for me . lol gail

When I was first dx. with Crohns and in a flare, I was having terrible chest pains that the doctors could not explain. For some strange reason, when I started the Prednisone, the chest pains disappeared! My brother in law is a cardiologist, and thinks that maybe my chest pain was muscular, which is why the steroids would have helped. I agree with Gachrons that I also try not to eat much past dinner to avoid indigestion. I also like Pepcid AC...for some reason that works better for me than the Protonix, which was very expensive and supposed to be stronger! If I have learned anything, it's that you have to experiment with what works for you, as we all seem to have our own idiosyncratic ways of responding. Glad to hear you are feeling better!
