Another TNF-blocking happy ending

I don't know. I've now seen so many stories about people with ankylosing spondylitis suffering for decades in pain until they encountered the miracle that is TNF-blocking biologics that I'm starting to get suspicious -- not of the efficacy of the treatment, nor of the veracity of the stories, but of where the stories are coming from. I just can't help but wonder whether there's a PR campaign under way. Anyway, the latest to follow the formula is this Father's Day story from Wales on Sunday.

  • On that note, I've just been instructed to stop taking Enbrel ASAP because I've developed strange neurological symptoms. We're waiting to see if the symptoms resolve by not taking the Enbrel. It's frightening to think that this neuritis I feel could be related to the "wonder drug". Also, there's another new case-study article/letter in the June issue of the Journal of Rheumatology regarding Enbrel and MS-like symptoms.
