    I have both Rheumatoid & Osteo Arthritis & Fibromyalgia. Enbrel has been wonderful. I can't use the easy click but have no problem with giving myself the shot. Site burns for a short time but well worth it. I have much less pain & stiffness with Enbrel. I have had a lot of infections & had to stop it several times but just for 2-3 wks at a time & then back on it.
