Anyone else have these side-effects?

I've been on Humira for two months now, and Imuran as well. And I'm starting to get some interesting side-effects. I noticed my vision is getting blurry, nothing terrible just to the point of annoying. Also, have this pain in my knees and elbows that, at times, is quite excruciating! I was wondering if anyone else has had to get glasses because of this, and if the joint pain is just something I need to get used to. Or if it will go away? One more thing, under my tongue seems to be puffy and irritated. Anyone else ever get that? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

My Support Groups:
Joint pain is something you should report to your GI... usually nerve pain is something to keep an eye out for on Humira, and joint pain is something I associate more with having active IBD symptoms, but it's still a good idea to mention it to them because you shouldn't be getting any additional symptoms at all.

Imuran takes about three months to reach therapeutic levels, and beyond the first week I stopped getting any side-effects from it (just some lightheadedness and brainfog).

Are you still flaring?

Only once, probably a week or so after the first injection. It's odd to me because I was feeling great up until a week ago.
