Last Friday my consultant upped my methotrexate doseage to 20mg a week. I have been on 15mg a week for a couple of years now with no ill effects.
Well, I took the tablets on Saturday evening and went to bed happy enough. Woke up on Sunday morning feeling more sick than I've ever felt in my life and, as the day progressed, the nausea got worse!
it finally seems to have worn off but I've not been able to eat anything since Saturday. And I know that in a couple of days I've got to do it all over again
At the same time he upped my Prednisilone, which was a blow because I've spent months reducing it so that I could eventually come off it - it has given me Cushing's Syndrome, which has made me so ugly I can't bear to look in the mirror.
He was right - my joint pains have more or less disappeared whereas last week I was walking with a stick. I can't be doing with that sickness though.
