I don't take enbrel, but I am on day 5 of my medrol dose pak, and the pain was so terrible last week, I seriously considered taking myself to urgent care, but then tell them what? I am in pain from my unspecified inflammation? I like the Medrol, but sheesh, the rebound after it wears off is really unpleasant!! So I know where you are coming from.
Keep your chin up, I know its hard!
I had to stop the enbrel because I'm being treated for latent tb. I don't have a positive ppd, but I have scars in my lungs indicative of an old tb infection combined with a low-grade fever for the past year or so. I'm still taking mtx and plaquenil, though, so I'm doing ok so far.
I guess now I know what happens when you stop taking one of the biologics--I've been wondering. Does this mean we may need to consider being on these types of drugs for the rest of our lives? Am I a DMARD junkie :)?
