I saw my rheumatologist in January and was diagnosed with RA. She prescribed Enbrel and I’m still waiting to start. The insurance keeps denying it and the doc keeps sending it back to insurance. I found out through my insurance company that the first submission for PA wasn’t done until February. Here we are almost to April and I’ve still not started the med. I’m so frustrated because I’m in so much pain along with other RA symptoms. I’m due to see the rheumatologist again mid-April and I’m sure I still won’t be on the med. I’m starting to get discouraged as well. I just want relief. I’ve tried all OTC anti-inflammatories and some prescription ones. Nothing has touched the pain. What are some things you’ve done to reduce symptoms?
