Bailey on Jun, 15, 2013:
My daughter is a 14 yr old female and has suffers from Lyme disease and arthritis. We have tried several arthritis medications before starting Lyme Treatment (Methotrexate, Prednisone, & Enbrel. We have been treated for lyme with multiple antibiotics. (Doxycycline, Riphampin, Bactrum, & Omnicief) We have talked to the Rheumatologist and she recommends starting Enbrel again. The lyme dr doesn't want to send the lyme into "overdrive" because the Enbrel is a immune surpressing drug.
All i want is for my daughter to feel better! Please help!
