anyone here have a reaction to enbrel (not the skin reaction!)?
i just hade my shot 3 hours ago, and from the moment i got it have felt a little queezy, flush (my ears burn), slightly itchy (but no rash), achy, and tired.
is this normal?

Hi there,

How are you doing?  I'm sorry that I didn't see your post sooner, I just haven't been on the forum much the past few days.   I take enbrel too, I think I've been on it almost 4 months now.  I don't ever remember having a reaction like that at all to the shot, did you call your doc?  I am surprised that you felt it so soon, I thought it took several hours for the meds to get into your system, but I think I would certainly call someone.  Have you tried the enbrel hotline?  They have a nurse on call all the time to answer questions and address your concerns.

Please take care and let us know how you're doing!

im ok now. not sure what that reaction was. about 5 minutes after the shot (which was no sweat!) i got a little back ache and a sudden rush. then queezy, burny, and funny feeling for the rest of the day. i guess the next shot will be telling.
