Stopping Humira & withdrawal symptoms

Hello

I was taken off Humira 6 weeks ago (having been on it for 2 years) as my new consultant thought it wasn't doing anything. He put me on a reducing dose of Budesonide for 3 months before I start a clinical trial.

My question is to anyone that has stopped Humira - did you have any noticeable withdrawal symptoms? Since stopping, I have noticed that I have a sore throat, husky voice and getting a bit wheezy. Nothing that is making me feel really ill but not sure if it coming off the Humira or whether I've picked up this dreaded virus that seems to be sweeping the UK.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

Thanks
