Numbness while using Humira

Has anyone experienced numbness in their hands? I have noticed that after taking my injection for the first few days my hands will randomly go numb more my right side than my left, which I actually inject my right side more than my left.

I am new to this forum so I am unsure if this question has been answered.

Yes and you should tell your doctor because humira can cause neurological problems. It's caused me life long problems.

I had that sensation in both hands and both legs. Ended up in the hospital for a week with it. It wasn't my Humira that caused it but rather losing all of my electrolytes due to diarrhea. Potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphates all fell to dangerously low levels and all of these have side effects of tingling and/or spasms. I am now on daily supplements and have no more tingling sensations. Have you had any recent blood work to check your electrolytes levels? If not, maybe you should?
