I have been on embrel since August I have flare ups about every 2 months. I go to the emergency room when that happens. I wait until the pain is bad enough so I can’t stand it anymore longer. I started out using humera on it for 3 months, didn’t work. Dr put me on embrel and celebrex. It all helps but not all the time. I am now looking for another Dr.

Recently retired from the fire service and with passed stressful weather events (Hurricane Irma) in Sept 17, I have had a lot of negative events in my life. Have been dealing with mild psoriasis since my late 20’s and now, a few years away from 60, I have had PsA symptoms for the last two years. As I said earlier, recent inactivity and stress I believe has exasperated both my psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I have a appointment the a rheumatologist in about 6 weeks (soonest I could get in). Limited resources here in the Florida Keys. I have researched a few of the treatments and going to hopefully try Enbrel. Long story looking for advice on Enbrel, and/or holistic alternatives to traditional treatments. Thanks ahead of time for anybody reading and or responding to my rant.

Sincerely,
Try to educate myself.
