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.
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?
I read an article on methotrexate that talks about taking it daily along with folic acid. My dr has me on 6 pills once a week, daily folic acid pill. Is anyone on methotrexate taking it daily as opposedto1 x week ?
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.

Cramping of fingers and toes
For me this is a new symptom. Is this part of RA?
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
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.
