Middle of the night flares?

Hi,

I was diagnosed with RA three years ago and I have been taking monthly injections of Simponi for about 2 1/2 years and it has worked great. Haven't had a flare in 2 years.

Lately I have been waking up in the middle of the night with an extremely painful knee, ankle or foot (knee was the worst). All I kept thinking was this feels like a flare. When I wake up in the morning, I feel fine aside from the regular stiffness in feet, etc. My blood work also showed that my C-reactive protein has gone up a little to 1.3 (previously it's been at 0.. So there is some inflammation.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Thanks,
LC
