Can anyone who has been on Enbrel for some time give me any advice about Sinus problems brought on by the use of it?
I had an ear infection in November for which i had Anti b`s and although my GP has said the infection has gone now, i am still having daily headaches, nausea,my ears feel blocked and i feel just plain ill. :(
I have made a new appointment to see the Dr. but it`s not until January 9th.
If this is going to be a side effect of Enbrel, what happens?
Do they give you something to counteract it or do they stop the drug?
Thanks for any replies
Happy New Year everyone

    I'm not on enbrel and never have been but I just wonder if this might help. My son (who doesn't have arthritis), many years ago, got flu and a sinus infection. I can't remember which way round it was now but one of them prolonged the symptoms of the other for weeks and it took another course of anti-bios to clear it.

    Whenever I have an infection that requires anti-bs I usually need at least two weeks' worth to fully shift the infection and I stop the immuno-suppressants too (on the advice of my hospital). DD
