well ladies and gentlemen I have done the third week of enbrel and it is going well so far. No rashes or any other reactions yayayayayay. It has made a difference to my fatigue levels which makes a big difference to my functioning at work. I am not almost crawling back to the car every afternoon and managing to stay awake to drive home. I am hoping the joint pain will decrease in time too
I went to the rheumy clinic and luckily the registrar was busy so I got to see a very experienced rheumy who said let's not bother with gold injection let's juts apply for the enbrel and see if the government approves it. So fingers crossed everyone that I am approved so that when my 3 month trial from the drug company is finished I can go on it via subsidised script. Amazing what can be achieved when you get someone experienced.
