Subject: new blood tests?

hope everyone is well and not in to much pain with this weather.

i have RA and using enbrel which i have been taking for 10 weeks which i just did my 10th one.
i have seen some improvement like less stiffness in the morning but i still have all over pain and so tied all the time. my muscles feel very weak and my elbow will still not straighten and my knee still clicks and gives way.

my rheumy nurse has decided to do more blood tests for my muscles? does anyone know what she is testing for?
i am so worried that there is something secondary going on and that i will be on crutches forever and that this pain will not stop.

sorry to have a moan. x
