Just started Humira 6 months ago. Was working at first, then last month my arthritis came back with a vengence. It was only in my hands and wrists before, now since the humira it is all through every joint in my body, My hands and feet are so swelled, that i cant even walk for a good 15 minutes in the morning and I cant bend my fingers. Even my toes are swelled. I don't know if this is a sign of the humira failing or if this is just a bad flare that the humira can't control.
I was on sulfasalazine before humira and it worked fine, but i was having trouble with my breathing on it. Now that i think back, i think the not being able to breathe was anxiety because once in a while i get the same feeling when i am stressed. Any insight on this would help.
