taking and now things have gone downhill with wrist, fingers, ankles, shoulders, hips and even in the groin area on both sides to where it hurts to even walk. My rheumy thinks that is coming from previous back surgeries and my back surgeon thinks it's the RA, but NEITHER have even bothered to take images of the shoulders or hips to find out WHICH one it is from. Everyday is a battle with this pain. I just turned 52 and feel like 102 most days. I seem to have harsh reactions to many, many meds, so this is what is scaring me pretty bad about the MTX and reading that it can actually cause other cancers scares me to death too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for listening.
