I havent been on for ages. Hope you and yours ok, Thought I would update you on Annie. She has been okish since the joint injections but she has still been struggling with her overall well being which is due to her arthritis being Systemic.
More recently she has also been suffering sporadic pain and pain in her knees- she is still on 5mg pred aswell as mtx so the decision to move onto Etanercept(embrel) has been made.
I am hoping that this new combo will do the trick - I would love her to be able to come off the oral steroids which she has now been on since february.
If anyone has any top tips on Embrel I would be really pleased to hear them - scared myself a few nights ago reading about the long term effects on the internet but realise we have no choice as if there is a chance Annie can feel better than she is, we have to take it.
Reading other posts it seems this weather is doing out little ones no favours.
Take care all
