I have had psoriasis sense 8 but psoriatic arthritis for the 1.5 years when I had a flare up that was so bad I could not stand on my own. Enbrel has saved me from what I thought was going to be a life of laying in bed. So for me the risk out weigh the benefit. I was first on me Methotrexate that was no help it came with lots of side effects. I have only had 1 injection problem in a year and half. But learned to inject in my stomach the thigh was much more painful. I am very thankful for Enbrel. Looking back I think I have had psa a lot longer years in fact but it flared up so bad I could not ignore it. Took 6 to 7 months to get Enbrel.
