I sure hope you all are in not too much pain. I have had my seventh enbrel injection as of yesterday. I get pretty tired the day I take it and sort of feel like I have some what of the flu, but hey no big deal. I had the best day of my whole life Saturday. I didn't want to say anything to anyone just incase I got my butt kicked, but...I am not all the way there by any means but I sure feel a difference. I have been in so much pain for so long I forgot what it feels like to have so much less pain. Now I am working on getting some sleep. I have been sleep deprived for months, a few hours of sleep a night(some nights none) for months, It kind of makes you go nutts. It has done a number on my brain. Alot of mood swings, anger, aggitation, major brain fog, and so much more. So my reg. P prescribed Ambien 10mgs for me..I sure hope it works. Because I want to believe I am on the road to recovery or out of this nasty flare I have been having....Thank you all for being there for me when I was so sick...
Many Blessings to you all,
