    i startted on Embrel Sept. 2011 it took approx 3 months before i saw any positive effects, ihave had chest inf. and 2 flare ups, what bothers me most is constant nausea and dry heaving and fatigue, the pain is managable now but my quality of life is not very good as i am too tired to do much of anything although this is preferable to the pain, i feel as if i am between a rock and a hard place!
