Discussions that mention enbrel

Arthritis board

There possibly could be a connection between the two but as of today researchers and doctors do not know what causes arthritis. I've had psoriatic arthritis for about 20 years. It's closely related to RA. I was never sick or had any major injuries before they diagnosed me so I have no idea what started mine. Mine is being treated with Enbrel injections and its doing a great job. I took methotrexate at one time for a few years and started losing my hair. Metho is a chemo drug. Anyway, after taking me off that and a few months later of still losing my hair I decided it must be hormonal because I had/have other problems going on also. Whatever you do, stay with a treatment to slow the progession down. Good luck!
