I had an appointment yesterday with my Rheumatologist. I told her the Enbrel makes me feel 40-75% better, depending on the weather. She wants a 100% improvement so she is thinking about starting me on Methotrexate in addition to the Enbrel. We'll determine that at the next appointment based on my progress. My lab tests are all normal but the doctor is still able to feel inflammation in several joints. I told her the pain is manageable at this point, far from the intense (just let me die now) pain I felt a couple of months ago. I had gained weight, up to 110 now. Things are looking better.
