    Enbrel for Ankylosing spondylitis

    Initial condition ankylosing spondylitis (ill for 20 years): Significant changes in the vertebral body visible on the radiograph, constant morning stiffness (about 30 min), slightly restricted mobility of the spine, jogging due to back pain not possible, long sitting very uncomfortable (therefore no theater visits etc. ) In short: clear restriction of the quality of life. After one year of Enbrel (once a week 50mg), all symptoms are pushed back so far that one could speak of ‘healing’. However, the first pain occurs after about two weeks without injection. Side effect Enbrel: From time to time allergic reactions occurred at the injection site. Slight swelling and redness similar to a wasp sting. The switch to Humira (40mg every two weeks) was easy. Humira seems to work a little better subjectively. Injection is a little more painful, but it has not come to the allergic reactions. Initial condition Chron’s disease (ill for 23 years): change between constipation and daily multiple spasmodic bowel movements of increasingly slimy consistency and extreme subsequent laxity. Two strictures a fistula (all operated on), flatulence, no pain. In short: clear restriction of the quality of life. Ability to work at risk. The Enbrel treatment had no noticeable effects on Crohn’s disease. The Humira treatment started with a 6-fold dose, which led to the first normal bowel movement after 23 weeks after two weeks. Although the symptoms described above occasionally reappear after reduction to the standard dose, but in a significantly reduced form, which is reflected in a weight gain of 6 kg. What remains so far is a certain listlessness and tiredness. Overall, however, I am very happy with both medications.

    Enbrel for Ankylosing spondylitis

    Enbrel for 8 weeks. After the injection about 1/2 day tired and limp. Difficulty concentrating. Always a bit cold, cough. Otherwise much less pain in the back. Hands and feet still hurt, but not so bad. Less tiredness.

    Enbrel for Ankylosing spondylitis

    With Enbrel came after a short time relief. For years, I have geqäult and no one has really found something. After a rheumatologist discovered Bekhterev’s disease, we immediately started therapy. I really can not say bad. The injection was getting used to at the beginning. But otherwise it was only uphill. After half a year I did not feel any pain anymore. Only small, disadvantage, despite the many movement I owe Enbrel, I have 8 kg increased.

    Side effects: Increase in weight
