I'm newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and my family seems to be getting upset when i can't do what i normally can. They also don't understand how sick i get after taking the methotrexate. I can't seem to figure out how to get them to understand how i feel. They see the swelling and weakness but still don't understand how painful it is for me. I have pain in my hands, wrists, knees and feet. I'm currently on 10 mg methotrexate (weekly) and 40mg prednisone (daily) any help is extremely appreciated!!!
