Well wasn't I a fool to suddenly stop taking MTX? I've had a series of flare ups since last Thursday and it's still going strong. Lots of things going on - from suddenly not being able to walk last Thursday morning, to my jaw now being in absolute agony. Every part of me hurts! Can anyone tell me if this is 'normal'??? From what I've read, most flares only last around 24 hours and usually return to normal after some rest etc! Don't want to waste my GP's time by going to visit her if this is just a part of the normal progression of RA. Any feedback would be great.
