I'm curious if anyone who's on Humira has experienced hip/groin pain. I've been on Humira (every other week) for 1 year and 4 months and have recently become aware of this sudden-onset pain in my hips and groin area that lasts for about 3 days after my Humira injection. The pain is not there until I stand up and walk; thus only during weight-bearing activity.
All along I've pretty much ignored all aches & pains that occur post-injection which only last a few days, but this pain is much more intense. To make sure it's not avascular necrosis (which is bone death & very serious), I'm going to have an MRI on my hips.
Anyone else experience this type of pain?
