... Rashes. In allergic to enbrel. After taking it my tongue swelled and I was on life support for a week. Anyone else having ra lung problems?
A year ago, thru a routine x-ray for a persistent summer cough, I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in the lungs. A few months later RA showed up in my blood tests as well as making itself well known to my body.. The two are connected - RA does affect the lungs. I've consulted with my pulmonologist after being on Enbrel for two months whether Enbrel will stave off the fibrosis of the lungs getting worse but he did not know. We had been considering to have me take the newly approved drug Esbriet but that is designed for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and will keep the fibrosis at bay but that would not be used specifically for RA lung.
