In brief: Not clear

In general you can use it as soon as you want to.
If it warms it may be more comfortable than when it is injected cold.

In brief: Anakinra

No, there is no harm caused by injecting Anakinra before it warms to room temperature however the injections are more painful and absorption may be slightly slower because the blood vessels constrict when they are cold.
