Hi! Yes, Humira can cause tingling and numbness in both legs and hands, and weakness of legs. Other than Humia, similar symptoms can be seen in vit B12 deficiency, diabetes, hypothyroidism and lupus. However, since you are on Humira, you must consult your doctor (as you have) and stress on the need to change the dose or shift to other medications. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
The numbness in addition to burning and tingling then moved to include my feet and ankles, both hands, and sometimes my forearms. The feeling moves around throughout the day. As I am typing this, it is my left foot and right hand that are experiencing this the most. The feelings are worse at night as it seems to feel like the tingling moves between both legs and from arm to arm, with occassional muscle spasms.
And now I am getting migraines just from the pressure of the pillow even when I am sideways, Is anyone else having migraines because of they way you sleep? I am taking Humira and my migraines have worsened since I started taking this type of medication but it keeps my rheumatoid arthiritis in check and me functioning so I don't want to switch or stop using it. When I get these burning migraines, I always emit a stale oniony smell which is embarrassing.
I feel like I have been experiencing some muscle tension in my arms and legs from the Humira and I wonder whether it is the Humira that is causing my neck and head problems. I went through a thorough neuro exam last week. I had high blood pressure -- which is not normal for me -- although they did not reveal my numbers. There were no significant findings on the physical exam that I know of, but I was sent for a CT Scan. I am awaiting the results of the Scan.
I have Raynauds's and my hands have been colder and bluer than usual and at times I have some numbness and tingling to a couple of fingers. My left wrist is becoming more inflamed. My rheumy said I could start my humira in a week and also start back on my mtx because of the shingles. I listed dr visit on my tracker because I was in contact with him for advice onmy treatment and meds.
I had accupuncture twice a week for about 5-6 weeks and then went to once a week afterwards, and it truly did help with the pain and even the tingling/shocking sensation I was getting down my legs/feet when I'd look downward. The downside is it's VERY EXPENSIVE! Between accupuncture and getting a weekly massage (the only thing that feels good on my neck to help relieve muscle tension), I was spending 650+ a month.
Now I have the same tingling and numbness mostly on my left, but on my right as well. With the tingling I also get goosebumps, but only unilaterally, on the arm experiencing the symptoms. I also have burning fingertip sensation and during my neuro exam, they found I was positive for L'Hermittes sign. and was experiencing decreased sensation on my left side. My left arm was also noticeably weaker and I They're going to MRI me next week and see if I have any new lesions.
I have had 2 tests for calcium and both have been high. pth and Vit D are normal. I have feet cramps, ankle cramps- feels like ligaments pulling. What is wrong?
However, when the meds didn't help my RA Doc said these exasperations are not going away. He started me on Humira and still they didn't go away. He said something doesn't seem right. With the meds your swelling and deformations should have changed. He said he needed a brain MRI before continue treatment because of non results with meds. I questioned and said ok. I had a Brain MRI and the report stated I have 1 large lesion that is Demyelinating in nature. After RA doc.
sulindac, injectable humira and methotrexate. With the sulindac, espectially, the twitching diminishes to low intensity, and spasms become occasional. But then I have flare ups, like now, with viciously jumping calf muscles and spasms in the legs and feet, so today I'm also starting a Medrol Dose Pak. I also got relief if I took a big dose of flexeril right before bed, but that left me feeling like a zombie the following day.
I am now on Plaquenil and Methotrexate, and will be starting Humira or Remicade in Feb. if the heat doesn't leave my joints (caused by Sjogrens). Last night I was in so much pain I didn't think I was going to ever fall asleep. I could barely move my arm or squeeze my fingers into a fist. The Humira and Remicade are IV or Injections, and are supposed to be a TNF blocker. We'll see. But...those meds will CAUSE a malar rash on a person's face SOMETIMES.
These include cognitive behavior therapy, creams containing coal tar, dithranol (anthralin), corticosteroids like desoximetasone, fluocinonide, vitamin D3 analogues and retinoids and phototherapy and photochemotherapy. Psoriasis that is resistant to topical treatment and phototherapy is treated by medications that are taken internally by pill or injection. The three main traditional systemic treatments are methotrexate, cyclosporine and retinoids.
The tingling extends from the top of my head and down the left side of my face and through my arm and hand. With the tingling I also get goosebumps, but only unilaterally, on the arm experiencing the symptoms. I also have burning fingertip sensation and during my neuro exam, they found I was positive for L'Hermittes sign. When I bend my neck to my chest, a jolt of intense pins and needles goes down my right arm.
Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the tingling is gone or not. In case the symptoms persist then get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
All specialists including GP,ENT and neurologist blamed it on pregnancy which should get back to normal after birth. Birth came (twins ) and the ear blockage came back(both ears ), the eyes still had floaters and the parasthesis was still bad in her right leg. She is pulling her hair out with the constant pain and is concerned that she may have suffered nerve damage maybe a demyelination from the HUMIRA which can cause some of these issues. 1) Is this possible ?
RA Dr took me off humira thinking this could be cause of cns problems, Been off for 30 days- currently on neurontin which has helped withed tingling so I think this is more the cure than no humira?
I do have to wear glasses for reading and distance driving but find myself wearing my glasses most all of the time now. My face does the tingling sometimes too and that is when I notice the dizziness and swimming more. I am having some difficulty remembering things and walking steadily(mostly I think because of the swimming head), saying the proper word or speaking correctly. Typing this today has been loads of fun. You would not believe the back spacing and correctingI have had to do.
I am actually concerned I already have aids which explains the white tongue and tingling. I was on humira before the encounter and am scared that my weak immune system has allowed the virus to already create cancers etc. Right now my only hope is he negative pcr tests which I have a hard time believe especially since they are not approved etc.
I started getting heartburn, headaches, and tingling sensations before the CT scan, But all the other symptoms came after the MRI's and CT scans. Anyway, I got diagnosed with ehlers danlos syndrome, but I've been having some other issues, so my doctor wants me to have another MRI of my brain and spine. She also wants me to have an x-ray of my cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. I told her I already had a CT scan and an MRI done, but she didn't seem worried about me having more x-rays done.
My GI doctor suggested Humira, but some of the side effects it could cause I already have, like tingling and numbness, and shortness of breath because I also have IST a form of Dysautonomia. The doctor said that the Crohns hasnt progressed into a serious case yet and that if I wanted to wait before changing treatments I could. She is woried though because I am losing weight while exercising and eating at least 5000 calories a day.
Legs go numb and tingling after a few minutes of sitting. Dhea is helping with staying awake and not having to take a nap everyday. Getting really angry gives me some energy but then I crash about 1/2 hour after I get mad. So I have to clean really fast. Extremely low DHEA Levels. Fattest I have ever been but all thyroid tests are fine. Bad hair days - Wirey weird some times - feels like melted plastic.
Hi, I am 23 years old and am currently in a flare up that started back in November 2009. I have tried Mesalamine, Prednisone, 6MP, Remicade, and am currently taking Humira and Methotrexate once a week. I feel like my life has been taken away from me. I was studying abroad for a master's degree when the flare up set in and decided to fly home to my parents to get proper health care and support.
I have a appt for a 3tesla MRI nest week as well as an EMG. I have been having tingling more so on the left extremities and tender bottoms of the feet. My Nuero ordered some lab work of which a positive ANA has came back. I know that ANA's can be false-positives and that you can not really count on that test alone.
this is a great list of questions - I'll see how many I can get answered tomorrow.
I just wanted to say, I feel what you're saying, I too have multiple symptoms , (thank you Txsilver for your support), I am having tinnitus, pain in joints, tendinitis in hands and feet, low grade headaches and blurry vision , especially at night (lights) I have tingling in both arms to my finger tips. I just had Rh and Gout ruled out...My Dr. said my rash on hands (joints) is exezma... I'm still having the pain and symptoms....
I tried Prednasone, Flector patches (almost made me pass out) and she wants me to take Humira but I refuse. I also tried giving up gluten which didn't help. I might need to give up all grains or dairy to see improvement. I hope some of these supplements will help you. Good luck!
My girlfriend has chrones disease and is takign humira. She has had no symptoms of being sick in three weeks, unlike myself. I'm sure I will need to go to the dr. eventually, but as stated before, If there is a chance I can skip the Dr. (since I can't afford it), I thought it was worth a try. In closing... If I HAVE to see a Dr, do you think I should go to a general dr. for treatment? If so, I risk getting referred to a gastroenterologist... quite pricey...
On January 28, 2009, I was struck by a very sudden head pain behind my left eye that caused residual tingling and soreness. When that continued, I went to the emergency room for help, and left with a "probably migraines" diagnosis and some vicodin. What has followed has been 11 months of difficulty that I could never have imagined; save reading some of the posts here that are much worse than my situation.
