Saw Rheumy Nurse this afternoon and now started on Methotrexate 15mg alongside Sulfasalazine. Took my first dose this evening and 1 Folic Acid tablet to take tomorrow. Hopefully this will make the difference for me. We had a good chat, bloods were taken and, joints assessed and then my Consultant came in and checked my knee which has been very painful and swollen for the last few weeks. He agreed that draining it would help and then said he would send an appointment in two to four weeks. This was disappointing news as I had been led to believe I was having it done today and had prepared myself for it. The Nurse said they were running behind and having to reschedule some procedures. So a few more weeks and hopefully the knee will be less painful.
Hope you are all doing well on your meds, X
