Hiya! I'm Ni, 24 from Redcar, UK.
I've suffered from Chronic RA for the past 4 yrs.
Ive been on Enbrel injections (2 weekly .25mg) for 6 months now and six weeks ago ive started having sharp pain as more liquid goes in to my leg and i have no idea why its just started happening after all this time?! ( i have been injecting into my thighs, fat helps!).
I've had no explaination from my specialist on why this should happen and i am trying and not succeeding to find a freeze spray to attempt my injections again without fear of the pain BUT my doctors have not heard of any freeze sprays at all! Ive tried the numbing cream and that has been useless.
Ive missed 4-5 injections thus far and i'm reverting to the awful pain i used to be in at the start of all this.
Does anyone know why it should hurt now and is there a brand of freeze spray i can ask for? As my nurse for Enbrel seems clueless.
I'm so glad i found this site!
