Good result from seeing rheumatologist this afternoon

Well, that was a good consult, I will soon be starting on etanacept, lets hope it works better than the enbrel. Was told that some of may pain is due to having a big fibro flare up at the same time. To tide me over until I get the injections, I was asked if I would like a steroid jab..... no prizes for guessing my reply lol
