: Hi, Peggy,

Hi, Just let you know been taking Enbrel for couple of years doing great on it.Had all the painful feet,hands,arms, legs and knee problems that go with RA.Enbrel is great.Was taking Vioxx but kept getting urinary tract infections.My son-in-law has a high iron in his blood and this is causing some very painful swollen feet and hands.Might want the doctor to check your liver and do a blood test for HHC.
