Cough with deep breath?

Hi there,

I started Humira over the summer and it does seem to be helping! However I'm a little concerned because I developed a cough in the last week or so. I had a short cold that cleared up three weeks ago, so the cough showed up about 2 weeks after the cold was clear. Basically if I take a deep breath I feel a deep uncomfortable tickle and have to cough. I had to climb a lot of stairs yesterday, and it made it hard to catch my breath because I couldn't take deep enough breaths. I just kept coughing. It seems to come and go a little bit but yesterday was concerning. I'm calling my doc tomorrow am, but I was wondering if any of you have had the same thing?
