Hi, I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis for about 12 weeks now. I am taking 5 2.5 tablets a week and one steroid tablet a day and a folic acid tablet 5 days a week. I have taken these for about 12 weeks now. I am not feeling any better but seem to be feeling worse. Very fatigued and muscle aches are terrible. I cannot keep my eyes open some days and feel sick and nauseous. I am starting a new job on Monday and wondering how on earth I am going to cope when I feel so dreadful. Is it still to soon for the methotrexate to be working, as I thought I was meant to be feeling a bit better by now. Has anyone else had this problem?
