Subject: Phil Mickelson

Interesting to read that he has been diagnosed with PA.
As a keen golfer myself (although not been able to play for a year for obvious reasons), I would like to know the exact drugs he's on to continue to play golf, I'm sure it must be TNF as he says he's having weekly injections.
Anyway, good to have some high profilr coverage of the condition.

I believe he is taking etanercept (enbrel)

And to be honest the way he talks about PA I kind of get the feeling its only very mild at the moment.

Yes, I thought that as well, however mine came on strong from day one and wasn't gradual.

Maybe its because at the moment he's only getting it in his hands and fingers. If he had it in bigger joints I don't think he would have been able to continue playing, whatever meds he took.

I think you are right there Tom, mine came on gradual then went away, and then came back a couple of years later with a vengance. I think everone is different. Anyway good luck to him and you take care.
