I’m on my 8th week of Methotrexate, at first I was taking 0.6 ml for 6 weeks and my doctor increased it to 0.8 ml.
My last week’s dose, the next day I woke up with all my joints swollen and painful. I am unable to move at all and been bed ridden until now. Today is my 8th week dose of methotrexate, but I’m afraid to take it because I’m thinking I might get worst.
Anybody here on Methotrexate experience this? Thank you so much
I'm flying next week and a little nervous about having to take my Kiniret with me. Anyone have advise for travel with a biologic that is in a syringe and has to stay cold?
I was taking methotrexate but was unable to continue do to severe nausea . I have been given Humeria but have been hesitant to start . Has anyone used this and had good results?
I just feel as if family/friends/significant others don't understand when you say you aren't feeling good. I don't want to even admit out loud that I am in pain because I feel like they think I'm trying to get out of something or making excuses. Does anyone else ever feel this way?
Diagnosed in January 2015 with RA.. When she came on it was very fast and and progressive, I am on Methotrexate, Plaquenil, and prednisone... That didn't help much at all.. So then she started me on humira... worked amazing... I was into my 3 rd shot and had an allergic reaction. So now She is taking me off of it.. ok, but why can't I go on another biologic?
Today I stumbled across a scientific article from the American College of Rheumatology (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/11/1...) linking the use of IUDs and the risk to develop RA. I personally find this troubling due to the fact that I had my Mirena IUD inserted in Feb 2017, started feeling my first symptoms of joint pain 2 months later in April, and got my RA diagnosis in November of 2017. Just curious if any other women out there explored this as a potential factor.
Hi everyone, serious question here.
Why would my rheumatologist prescribe Plaquenil with a low ANA and no definitive diagnosis yet? Thanks for reading!
