I'm 31 and was diagnosed with RA 4 months ago. I started on the Enbrel 1 month ago and the pain in my hands, shoulders and feet is practically gone. I have a hard time getting myself to inject the meds (even with the auto-injectors). Nonethless, this drug has really proven itself in such a short amount of time.

I was reluctant to give it a try, but after DMARD and maxing out on Methotrexate, I gave in, praying that relief would come. THey say hind sight is always 20/20, and I guess it is true. Within 8 wks I felt like a new woman. Been almost a yr and lets hope it keeps working.....
