I am not sure if Rheumatoid Arthritis is hereditary but my aunt back home has it. She was taking medications years ago. In my situation now, I am trying to take advantage of Enbrel, a prescription medicine for treating moderate arthritis. The proper dosage works and it does not give me any bad feeling. If a person is not allergic to any medications at all, there is no problem taking Enbrel. I get moody when I feel my fingers’ swell because my physical activities are limited. For example, I cannot work on my computer for long periods, which I need to because there are things to work online…like typewriting.
The best thing to do for those who have arthritis is to be aware of the helpful information on treatment development. Medical professionals are doing their best to provide us with the effective cure. I must say that medicine in commercials today are of good advantage in public information. But if by chance I will be in a commercial, my message line would be “Stand up! Do not let arthritis bring you down.”
