Treatment Issues

New Joints affected with treatment?

  • By fragrantroses

    Hi, I’m new to this page and people call me Rosey. I have been on metho for 3 years and on Enbrel for 16 months. In the last two months, I’ve had worsening of one joint and a new joint is now affected. My appointment to see the Rheumy isn’t until the end of April and good luck getting in to see him sooner. So I’m curious if other people have had new or worsening symptoms while on treatment? Except for these two joints, I’ve had a pretty good week. I have to pace myself through chores with frequent rests but my pain level has been down to 2/3. So it’s like things are good, but some things are not as good.

    Hi Rosey and welcome to the community!
    I’m so sorry to hear that the last two months haven’t been so good….in regards to worsening of symptoms while on treatment: We definitely have had some members mention experiencing this and some even find that their medication eventually stops working altogether — requiring them to try a new one.

    That’s so frustrating to have to wait until the end of April for answers!!!
