In March, I had to get off Humira since I had strep throat & had to take antibiotics. A little after thus, my joints started to hurt & swell.My Rheumatologist put me on Prednisone but the first 3 days, I would feel great & then back to hurting & not feeling well. Now I cannot walk without crutches since both legs hurt & are stiff. The Rheumatologist wants me to see a Orthopedic doctor because he doesn't know what it could be. All I do know is that thus happened after being off the Humira for almost a month. Has anybody had this happen to them?
