I started Humira mid March and I do injection in my thigh, after I have red swollen circle that is itchy and painful about 4 inches diameter and lasts a week or so then leaves a bruise. I can see every injection site I've done. My ankles have swollen after as well for the first week then they are ok. Has anyone else had this happen. I'm a bit worried about my ankles swelling. Lol52

The little circle, and bruise, that is normal. That is from the pen, it uses quite a bit of force to drive the needle into your leg. Look up inside of a spent one, there is a metal spring.

The swollen ankles, I have no idea.
