Shoulder Pain

Lately, well over the past month and a half, I've been experiencing extreme should pain at night. The pain is so extreme that it wakes me up several times during the night. Usually, I sleep on my side, because that is the only position with which I can get comfortable. The problem comes when the pain hits me, then I have to switch side and the cycle repeats all night.

I've tried some methods to try to alleviate the pain, including extra pillows, etc. , but nothing works.

I have shoulder pain during the day, but I think that the sleeping exacerbates the issue.

Humira and Stomach Pain

I just wanted to journal what I'm experiencing right now. I've been on Humira for about a month and I've been experiencing extreme stomach pain at night and some pain in the morning when I get up.
The stomach pain at night is accompanied by some pretty severe body aches and a general feeling of discomfort.

I'm not sure if the pain is Humira related of just a flare due to the weather change (it's been in the 50's at night and 70's during the day).
