Does Anyone Else Suffer From Toe Cramps

Does Anyone Else Suffer From Toe Cramps

Does anyone else have trouble with toe cramping up at night when you are trying to sleep, or wake up in the middle of toe spasms at night. I have been doing that for the last couple weeks, even with taking a muscle relaxer before bed.

Yes my cramps are getting more frequent and happen at anytime. Even putting on socks causes my toes to cramp.

How Hard Is It Giving Yourself Methotrexate Shots? Anyone Gave A Bad Reaction?

How Hard Is It Giving Yourself Methotrexate Shots? Anyone Gave A Bad Reaction?

I took the oral twice and had severe stomach problems. Doctor says with the shot I won't have these problems, so I'm hoping she's right. I'm taking the folic acid also, as well as Hydroxychloroquin and Meloxicam. Anyone else have luck with these drugs?

Yes it is... At least in my head. I too use a diabetic needle. I've rebelled so many times and just stopped giving myself shots but my symptoms creep back full time. Pulled up my big girl panties and… read more

Do You Experience Severe Muscle Spasms With Your RA?

Do You Experience Severe Muscle Spasms With Your RA?

I've mentioned the excruciating muscles which I get in my legs at times, especially after I've been on my feet very much during the day. I've only been diagnosed with RA for a few months but these muscle spasms have happened for many years. Nobody has ever been able to give me the slightest idea why or anything effective to prevent/relieve them but I saw another member here mention muscle spasms a couple of days ago and am wondering if there's an RA connection.

Does Anyone Get Charley Horse's Or Muscle Spasms In There Feet?

Does Anyone Get Charley Horse's Or Muscle Spasms In There Feet?

I've been getting charley horses in my feet for several months now. They come and go a few times a day. I notice it happens when I put my socks on or they will come on just from moving my foot. It started shortly after I started to have a very bad flare and started treatment of methotrexate and prednisone. I forgot to tell my doctor so I was hoping to get some help on here. Thanks

Does Anyone Get Leg And Calf Cramps And Spasms At Night?

Does Anyone Get Leg And Calf Cramps And Spasms At Night?

So this started nightly about 6 weeks ago where every night when I go to bed unless I lay perfectly still I will get muscle spasms in my calves or feet where I have to jump out of bed to relieve the muscle tightness. Some nights will happen six or seven times and significantly affecting my sleep. Went to my family doctor who gave me pills to take for restless leg syndrome to help. Well is sort of helping but just can't figure out what is causing this. Got blood work to check iron and calcium… read more

Methotrexate

Methotrexate

I’m going to start taking methotrexate this week but was wondering about drinking I like to have a glass or two of wine a evening with dinner. What’s everyone experience on drinking, really worried about the side affects of these tablets, any help much appreciated.

A myRAteam Member said:

I was told to not drink on the day i take my pills. I do have a couple drinks about once a week but not on pill day. My blood tests show liver just fine.
