I took my first enbrel shot on Monday.  By Monday night I was pretty tired and my face was a bit flushed it didn't last long.  Tuesday night I took my Methotrexate 25mg.  Wednesday I woke up with a bad bad flare.  Took my other meds and continued with the day as usual.  By 7pm I was walking with minimal pain.  It never goes away like that no matter how much meds I take.  Woke again this morning with the same thing.  Currently soaking my feet in hopes of loosening them up enough to be able to go to work.  Today I was going to try to go without wearing the brace but it looks like I am not ready for that yet either.  Now I have a lymph node on my neck that is huge and painful probably an ear infection, I never know if I have one or not.  I was tired but not bad.  For you ladies it is also that time of the month.  I am thinking that a mixture of things has caused this and not just getting the enbrel shot.  Yesterday, I have a real concern that work isn't going to be possible for very long.  Maybe short term disability is in my future?  I have two jobs and one is computer work but neither job alone will support me and my son.  Would I still be allowed to work from home and claim short term disability?  Not even sure how to go about doing that.

Getting so tired of this. I am hurting so bad. Getting very emotional now because of how long this has been going on. I cry in the car, at home, even broke down at work about a lost piece of paper. People, I don't cry. This is telling me I have reached peak level of being able to deal with this pain. I can't do anything. I work, go home and lay down. That is my life. Not much of a life for a 32 year old. If I could only walk without so much pain it would be different. Heck, now I have a bladder infection because it hurts too much to get up to go at night, so I don't... it's ridiculous. What am I supposed to do?
