Hi There I am new and live in Australia, can't seem to find any support groups like this here.
They aren't really sure if it is RA or Lupus or combo but they are talking methatrexate for treatment. I am a little freaked as this is a chemo drug and as I had a child that died of cancer I am intimately aware of the side effects of chemo. But first things first I have to have a liver biopsy as my LFT levels have been consistently high for a year now. I work full time and wonder what the usual side effects are, not the bs they tell you in the blurbs but the real side effects and if I will be able to work full time while taking it. I also have multiple chemical sensitivities and have allergies to most antibiotics so I am not keen on taking anything that may cause infection as I have very very limited options for antibiotics.feeling a bit freaked out here! Can I just take nothing?
