Hi sorry you’re experiencing this I never had that symptom. I started on hydroxuria for 1 year but I’ve been Jakafi for 3 years and I feel pretty good

Yes I have pain and stiffness in my neck, shoulders and upper arms with tremors in my thumbs. But I also have rheumatoid arthritis. I was first put on Hydroxy but had horrible GI side effects, so now am on Methotrexate (mainly for arthritis) and Prednisone.
