I started my RA treatment a couple of weeks ago. The first drug I was prescribed was MTX with Plaquenil.
Why do I have the feeling that before treatment I had less pain???
This is my third week with MTX 7.5 m/week and my fingers, shoulders and arms are really aching like never before. My fingers are swollen like never before.
Is this what they call aggressive treatment and the drug is fighting the inflammation so hard, or something else is happening???
