I have been using Repatha for over a year and after the last dose my hands are sore joints hurt and swollen. First time this has happened.
I've been on Repatha on two separate occasions, and had bad muscle aches both times, including in the hands. I resumed it because I didn't realize that Repatha was causing it the first time. After 5-6 injections the first time, the symptoms resolved after about 6-8 weeks. This time, I took just one shot three weeks ago, got the muscle aches after 5 days, and still have them. Symptoms helped somewhat with light exercise, DayQuil and rest. Good luck.
