Subject: All hail etanercept!

Can I just say that a miracle has occured..... haha
Ive been feeling so much better since my first injection last weds and to top it off I had my first blood test results since I started.
My CRP has gone from 52.4 to.......... wait for it.......... 3.7!!!! and my hb which is usually around 10 is now 12.5!
I dont think ive EVER had blood this healthy! lol
Doesn't it usually take time to kick in? I really wasn't expecting it to work! lol

Great news Verity !! Maybe because it was injected might have made it work quicker ???? Whatever - as long as it's working for you ;0)

That's briliant news Verity, I'm so pleased for you. It's really funny that I don't even know you but that news really made me smile.

I had exactly the same reaction when I started injecting. The rheumy wasn't convinced and thought it may have been a coincidence that my PA had calmed down a bit just as I started the etanercept. But, having injected twice a week for 7 years I know that if I miss one I notice it. And when I had to stop it when I fell pregnant I was having difficulty with my PA within a week. I can't wait to start back on it again once bubba is born.

I wish everyone with arthur could go on etanercept straight away and have such wonderful results.

Enjoy the freedom xxx
