Been on methotrexate for 12 weeks now since the diagnosis of lupus and I'm still trying to figure out my lupus. It seems still pretty active but what I think is now happening is when I take my methotrexate on Saturday (20mg) my joint stiffness and pain is quieter from Sunday-Wednesday I think. Then it flares up more. Am I imagining this pattern or is this common of methotrexate? Got my Rheumy appointment Monday and he was maybe going to put it up to 25mg anyway. Any advice appreciated still figuring out what causes an increase in symptoms - it's hard! Scoofie x
