Pain In the Neck

| Filed under: Paula Abdul


Poor old gal!

According to a new report, Paula Abdul has undergone neck surgery to fix an old cheerleading injury.

The neck problem has reportedly been a persistent cause of pain since she was a teenager and was made worse by a car accident in 1987.

Pain = a lot of pain pills?????

Poor Paula's been in a pain a loooooooooooooooooooong time!

She had the surgery done earlier this month so she'd be ready to go for American Idol's New York auditions, which began early last week.

Back in 2005, Paula opened up about her neck pain and said that she tried taking different medications prescribed by doctors to ease the pain, but nothing worked. She also admitted that the drugs sometimes made her "loopy." However, since then she claims the only medication she takes is a Rheumatism remedy called Enbrel.

Wonder what continued to make her loopy during Idol's early 2008 season?

Regardless, we hope she won't be in any more pain!

    that's such an unflattering photo,
    Paula's usually gorgeous, for a druggie, that is.

    Druggies are ALWAYS looking for an excuse to get more meds AND to legitimize it to themselves as well as everyone else. I'm surprised she's not fatter… must be on uppers, too.

    Watch those pills Paula! Too much is not a good thing!

    Enbrel is a drug used for RA-from what I know of it its VERY expensive and its very hard on the body. It is NOT a pain killer.
    I have only heard of it used as an RA drug…which is an auto immune desease. Rheumatism is not a diagnosis-that could be any numbers of ailments.

    I cant stand Paula, but I have to defend her a bit. I've had two back surgeries and am now disabled. I take all sorts of meds for my pain and other problems. Chronic pain is no joke. Vicodine, Norco, Oxy…. they all help but I too have been loopy. And don't mix with booze… black out!

    Just admit to being a pill popper already, bitch!

    ENBREL is a type of protein called a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker that blocks the action of a substance your body's immune system makes called TNF. People with an immune disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, or psoriasis, have too much TNF in their bodies. ENBREL can reduce the amount of active TNF in the body to normal levels, helping to treat your disease. But, in doing so, ENBREL can also lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections.

    Personally, I like Paula when she's fucked up. I bet she's a wild fuck too.

    This sounds like the excellent opportunity for Paula to finally get to to that stack of Vicodin that's been piling up on her desk.

    ewwwwww! helmet hair

    As someone who has been on Enbrel before…you do not take Enbrel for neck pain or osteoarthritis. Maybe she has something else going on, but if she is on Enbrel it is much more than an old injury or she has some quack doctors. Sometimes drugs can be used for off label issues but Enbrel works on immune mediated illnesses so it wouldn't control pain from injury.

    Re: Perezious Peep – FYI "Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
    ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms, keeping joint damage from getting worse, and improving physical function in patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis"

    Her chin needs to give me a call. Lookin good ;)

  25. 25

    i love her but the hole drugs i would have never come out about that she is going to cause rumors on her self

  26. 26

    I think after she heals from the surgery she should go to rehab, once addicted always addicted. Good Luck Paula

  27. 27

    hope it works good luck

    I took Enbrel for 5 years and my 12 y/o daughter takes it now for Rhuematoid Arthritis and I have never known it to make me "loopy". It definately wasn't the enbrel. Also if she has some sort of Auto Immune disease, which her being on enbrel tells me she does, then she shouldn't be treated with narcotics, which is what would make her loopy.

    Girlfriend needs some good facial wax. What up with that mustache. And the helmet hair has to go.
