I saw the rheumy today, and she wants to take me up to the maximum dose of mtx. She's prescribing leucovorin as well, instead of follic acid to try to lessen the side effects but mtx makes me feel gross for about 3 days after the shot...and then it's nearly time for the next one. I've always been kind of reactive to meds, but this one frustrates me, at least in part because I'm not seeing much improvement. I know, 2 months isn't very long in the scope of mtx, but I just feel wrung out like a dishrag. I've decided to name my RA, though. It's called Weevil, and I hates it.
Ah well. Today I am grateful for hot baths, clean sheets, a ridiculous cat, and a place to vent.
