New beginnings

Today I took my first dose of methotrexate and prednisolone. It's taken a little while since being diagnosed with Polymyositis in November to get to this point, as it was thought that I may have lupus. I've decided for 2018, to concentrate on getting as well as I can, it's going to be a long journey πŸ˜ƒ

Vonnie, I hope you're feeling better by now. How's it going?

I'm so much better, thank you for asking. Back at work part time and slowly building muscle strength with a mix of hydro and physiotherapy. Hope you are well

That is great to hear! So you haven't had to take corticosteroids and immunosuppressants? Please keep us posted. So very good to hear you are better. :)

I'm still taking Prednisolone, down to 10mg and methotrexate, they seem to be keeping everything under control. See rheumatologist in January, hoping to take Prednisolone down even more or come off it altogether. Will keep updated
