I started methotrexate last Saturday. The rheumatologist gave me a low dose of steroids on Tuesday. Aches were a lot better by Wednesday. started night sweats on Tuesday night by Thursday morning feeling very sick, can't eat properly because I feel worse, last proper meal Wednesdy. Feel groggy weak listless 'out of it'. dr saw me this morning I have no signs of infection. he thinks it is either to do with RA or reaction to drugs. I have omneprazole and anti nausea tablets. he is hoping things will improve. I don't think I can cope with this if it goes on. all I can eat is small amounts of lentil soup but often feel worse afterwards. I have been in bed for the week. Getting up I become whoozy and need to lie down again. I thought I might reduce steroids to see if it is that. If it is the methotrexate has any one gone through this. does it get better I can't bear too much longer like this. dreading taking the methotrexate tonight it feels like putting poisen into me. I can feel th aches and inflammation are reduced in my body but these other symptoms are awful. Any advice thankyou. maywing
