Is it Enbrel that the dr plans to put on? I am on that and methotrexate for psoriatic arthritis and the combo works well for me. Good luck to you!
My son has had JRA and has since he was 3 he is now 25. he had two hip replacements at 16 and a knee replacement at 19. he was in a wheelchair from the time he was 15 til he was 19 then he went on the tnf inhibitor Enbrel and methotrexate.He was up and walking in 5 weeks and has been going strong since. He plays paintball and goes to college. He still has flares sometimes but nothing like he was before enbrel. Don't be afraid of treatment look forward to being pain free. Good luck
