My name is Laura and I am new to the website. I was dx with RA about 5 yrs ago. I've been on Metheltrexate and prednisone. In February I started using Humira. Interestingly, the Humira "cured" me from the waist up. I was sooo happy. However within months I began complaining of what I thought was hip pain. Recently (last month or so) I began to have difficulty walking. Finally, I could barely make it from my car across the parking lot into the office. I went to see my doctor last Thursday. he put me off work for a week. BTW, my labs show I'm fine. We suspect the Humira. He immediately saw it was a muscle problem and not RA. Has anyone experienced anything like this EXTREME weakness in the legs while on Humira? Thanks!
