After nearly 6 years of living with RA, I'm in a routine with blood tests and prescriptions. However, since starting my job last July, I've been busier and I've become quite complacent about my bloods. Rheum grudgingly agreed to 6 weekly instead of 4 weekly but time constraints has meant it's been closer to 8 weekly. Given that I've been on MTX for 5 years with not one iota of a problem, I assumed it would be fine. I've just got a phone call from rheum nurse, saying they are concerned about my bloods and requesting an urgent blood test before my next MTX dose. Sooooo, lesson has been learned!
