Thanks. I will try that.

I hope they don't change their minds for you as well. I hate insurance. They cover my GI doctor but not where she does her procedures. I need a colonoscopy (ulcerative colitis) and endoscopy (ulcers) but don't have $2000 to pay for it.

My insurance doesn't cover Embrel until I try humira first. I am now waiting for them to approve the pharmacy so I can start.

Everything I have read makes Embrel sound easier to use. I figure at this point, I am desperate to feel better so I will see what insurance dictates as well.

Thanks Becky. No nurses in my family or friends group. My husband can help me. I'm just so scared. I want to be pain free or at least in less pain. Thanks for having confidence in me. After all the research I'm going to give Embrel a try. Wish me luck!

Thank you. My rheumatologist said they are all similar and is leaving it up to me. I hate needles and am scared but I need to relieve some of this pain.

I am going to be starting biologics and I have to decide between Humira and Embrel. Anyone have any words of wisdom for me?

I did go to the university of Penn but wasn't happy with them. I found a local rheumatologist and finally have gotten diagnosed with RA and fibromyalgia. He ran a special blood test (vercta d) which showed inflammation and is used for RA.
