Hi all. I've been taking 12.5 mg of Methotrexate for the last six years now for sera negative rheumatoid arthritis. However, for the last six months or so Iv been suffering with extreme bloating of my lower tummy area at the end of the day a few times a week. Very painful and lasts for hours. Long story short - I recently had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done, awaiting biopsy results next week but the doctor reckons I might have a condition called colitis. A bit of research online indicates there's a bit of a connection between colitis and RA..... Just wondering if there is anybody out there who does suffer from both of these together and what are it's implications?? I am a 29 year old female. Thanks!
