Back in August i had 15mg of Mtx Mixed with my sulazalazine but the mtx gave me the most violent of headaches, in October my rumey reduced the mtx to 10mg to try and elevate the headaches which worked.
I continued taking 10mg and was free from headaches and pain. Until the week before Christmas when I had a flare and still have. I Have since increased my mtx to 12.5mg and my next dose I am going to take 15mg once again now my body has got used to it in the hope the headaches don't return, my rumey wanted to take me off and start the process for bio drugs but I wanted to continue with the mtx as I thought this was to be my wonder drug.
The pain currently is so intense i had a steroid injection yesterday to give me some resbite. My hands are double the size my knuckles are raging red and my shoulders and hips hurt. I am trying to continue to go to work and look after the family home but when in pain this is becoming increasingly difficult, Does any of you lovely people have any suggestions I am not sure as if I should give up on the mtx as it's clearly not working and try a bio drug or continue on the mtx????
