Hi fellow sufferers saw my Rheumy yesterday such a nice Dr., after going through my blood test results & X-Rays he has now confirmed the I have Aggressive Rheumatiod Arthritis & have now been put on a course of Methotrexate 7.5mg once a week for 4 weeks to see if I have any adverse reactions if all OK then 10mg once a week until I see him again in 3months also prescribed were Folic acid tablets. Heard so many reports of reactions to Methotrexate I hope all goes well with mine. on the X-Ray It shows both my Thumbs are worn out & both Big Toes are badly affected. Seems ironic that I have worked with my hands as a Mechanic for these passed 44 years now as I have retired so it seem have my Thumbs.
