I'm new to this site and love reading everyone's posts. I'm on steroids at the mo due to a flare up with my inflammory arthritis. Mt consultant at guys hospital is going to do his best to see me next weds. I have refused to go on methotrexate for a long time, but I have no choice now really. I am dreading it... Especially worried as I work full time and need to work but worried I'll be too exhausted once I start these meds. I am tired all the time now and can't afford to even cut my hours down. The other side effects worries me too.
