My last blood test for the horrible Histoplasmosis was in the negative range. I'm totally elated! My rheumy and infectious disease docs said I could go back on my Enbrel. Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been back on it now for about three weeks and I can already tell a huge difference in how I feel with the RA. It had gotten sooooo bad during the waiting time that I was back in a wheelchair. I may never get to go back on the Methotrexate due to my lung problems and I really hate that as the Enbrel and Methox were the perfect mix for me. My rheumy has put me on 5mg of Prednisone trying hard to get me back to where I was before all this mess began. It may take a long time. I don't know for sure but I'm willing to try even though you know how I hate pred. If I can get better with only 5mg I won't complain at all. ;)
