Has anyone had their joints begin hurting since taking Humira?  I have been using Humira for almost 2 years and have tolerated it well.  Was on Remicade but developed extreme reaction so hence the switch to Humira.  Since my last injection I have had very painful hand, knuckle, knee, hip and feet joint pain ( more than my usual osteoarthritis pain).
Just wondering if it could be related to the Humira, maybe I am building up a tolerence to it, I don't know.
Thanks for any help or ideas!

Hi Anne,

You could be developing Humira induced Lupus.  A Rheumy can diagnose you.  I developed Remicade induced Lupus, very painful.  I have now been on Humira for one year, so far so good, but I must say I am starting to develop some of the same side effects I had with the remicade.  ie joint pain and nose sores.   Do you have headaches with the Humira?  I have been, and I never get headaches.   

Take care and please keep us posted.

Thanks for the reply Julia!
Yes, I have had more headaches than usual for me. I just figured it was part of my seasonal allergy issues. I will keep an eye on things and if pain continues I will go see my rhuemy! Joint pain is not new for me, but when my knuckles and feet hurt something is up.
