I've just returned from my Rheumy appointment. After taking two injections of MTX with newly raised dose (12.5mg) a week. Liver enzymes were OK according to the latest blood test. joints pain and swelling is still up and down ( seven days good, five days in agony). He decided to raise the dose again to 20 mg. I'm thin (42 Kilos) and generally weak . the same old question: Will I survive this dose, I'm scared and crying. I don't know if I'm going in the right direction. He said dose will be reduced if I get better, do you think so???
