Went to my appointment on Thursday & got quiet upset. The soreness in my chest I've been told is my Rheumatoid, & my blood is to sensitive to increase methotrexate, so they want to keep me on my current dose but add in Sulfasalazine. I inject methotrexate because I got so sick on the oral form, & have been told that Sulfasalazine will increase to 4 a day orally & will affect my stomach. Really bad news, I do not want to take it I feel that the meds can be worse than the rheumatoid. I get really concerned when I read how many meds some of you are on, does it ever stop & what quality of life can you have on these meds. Would really appreciate your help.
