After being diagnosed with RA in October last year, was put on Methotrexate it was gradually increased to 25mg weekly and then sulfasalazine was then put in, my liver enzymes had increased also and had reached 100 at one point so was taken off everything to let things settle, liver went back to normal within 3 weeks, so they put me back on methotrexate 20mg weekly within 2 weeks my liver enzymes were sitting at 84 my mouth was full of ulcers and I have a urine infection and have low iron levels, and I feel crap, they have once again taken me off methotrexate. My joints are so sore especially hips, knees and hands, so tired and just feel sorry for myself. have had two steroid injections since October so they are not keen to give me any more. Not due to go to my consultant until 15th of May. What can I do meanwhile, any suggestions ??
