Discussions that mention enbrel

Back Problems board

Quote from diva78:
What was the interview about? didn't catch it but would like to know what it was about. Thanks!

In the interview she disclosed about the long battle she's had with neck/back problems...and when I say long I mean 12 surgeries worth of long! So much of what she said made me jump out of my skin because I could relate to it so well. She's had fusions and other things but was still in excruciating pain. Then, last year, a friend suggested she see a rheumatology expert at UCLA. She says he changed everything and today, she says she only gets one shot of Enbrel per week and takes no other meds for pain management and feels great. She was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a nervous system malfunction that usually follows some sort of injury.
