Sorry I haven't posted in a while. So I switched to a different Rhuemtologist. The women I was seeing was very insensitive and rude. We could not agree on a treatment plan for the life of me. She wanted me to be her Ginny pig in all aspects of trying loads of medication. My new dr is amazing! He listens and acknowledges which is always a very good relationship to have with your doctor. Even though immuran made me sick with the last doctor he asked me if I would give it one last shot. I did and boy oh boy was I sick as hell for two days from pill. Endlessly throwing up and had to call family to help take care of my kids. He was always willing and did switch out my steroids so I don't have to take the prednisone anymore if I have a flare because the side effects were just too much. My previous dr told me there were no other choices for steroids. I have to say she was a heartless bitch. So yesterday I started Enbrel. While giving myself a shot once a week is better than a pill everyday that makes me sick, giving myself the shot which stings like a sob is not that easy. Happy to report that it's been 24 hours and I'm suffering from zero side effects of the medication!!! I'm hoping this helps to put my Bechets into remission. If not then he is going to put me on remicaid which will entail a hospital visit once a month for a few hours. Fingers crossed folks. Has anyone else used Enbrel for their Bechets??
