Please excuse my lack of knowledge and terminology as I am a newbie
I was diagnosed with Psoriatic arthritis last month and my Rheumatoligist has applied to NICE for funding for Enbrel.
Since the appointment I have been reading up on it and have to say I am terrified of the sound of it.
In their website it says to avoid infections. Do they mean the common cold? I am wondering how easy this will be as I have a 5 year old who is at school, a 1 year old who is at nursery full time and I work in an office packed full of people. So avoiding illness for me would be pretty challenging.
It also states that you should contact your G.P. at the first sign of illness. I really don't want to put myself in a situation where I am having to take time of work because I am constantly ill or forever in the G.P.'s surgery because I have a bit of a sniffle.
If you could share your experiences of life on Enbrel I would be very grateful
