Hi all,. I am new on here and wondering if someone can help feel in the blanks. I have psoriatic arthritis had this for about 13 years. I am not a big drinker and have the occasional half larger months apart haven't had a drink for months. I was taking 15mg of methotrexate for the last couple of years. The hospital put it up to 17.5mg. Then in July this year I was put on 20mg injections with folic acid daily but not on the day I inject. I went for a routine blood test last week. I had every one call me to tell to stop taking the methotrexate as my ALT are high. I was asked to come In and my consultant told me I had drug induced liver injury. I told him they have been high before and he said no nothing like this. I've had to stop all meds other than a tablet he gave me to flush my liver which has finished. I am just hanging in limbo. Going for a scan end of the week but feel so lost as to what's going on it's been a whirlwind. What are my chances that's my ALT will come down and all will be ok. Sorry for the long message. Thanks Kellie.
