Hi everyone, went to see Rheumy Nurse this afternoon for follow up after having my knee drained last week and to see how I am coping with Methotrexate. I am feeling much better, not quite as sore, and it's good to be able to bend my knee again. I have to take it steady and not kneel down for too long but that's fine. I told her that I had migraines with the first three doses of Methotrexate and last week my head just felt strange, but not a headache as such. She went to speak with the Consultant who wants me to carry on as I am for another two weeks to see if it improves. He was going to increase the Mtx from 15mg to 17.5mg but has decided to hang fire. Also my CRP and ALT levels (I think that's what they said) have gone up so need to keep an eye on it and see what next readings are. Hopefully things will settle and I will continue to improve. Hope you are all seeing improvements too. X
