So I'm still in a flare up since September. Started methotrexate 15mg in January, lowered my hydroxy to 200mg and also on 8mg of prednisolone. In march I started feeling marginally better i.e. could get out of bed or leave the house once in a while, saw my rhuematologist again in may who raised my metho to 20mg and said that the metho should be working much better so put me on the highest he thinks I could tolerate, he wanted to see me in 2 months; the earliest appointment is in october! I'm still really low on energy, can't get around much and still get bad joint pain but marginally better than I was previously! I'm on the right level for my underactive thyroid. All my other bloods are fine. So now I'm a bit worried I'm not responding to metho and not sure what would be next? Or if this is the level of energy and pain I have to live with from now on? I hate complaining and just want to get on as I have a 1 1/2 year old to look after and I feel she's missing out, it's just getting me a bit worried that I'm not much better. Has anyone had anything similar with metho?
Sorry it's a bit long winded
Thank you all x
