Just thought I would give an update. I rang my Doctor's surgery yesterday to see if the results were back following chest x-ray I had week last Thursday, due to cough and breathlessness following increase of Methotrexate. I was told the results are not back yet and will be at least another week. Just wondering if I should ring Rheumy Nurse on Monday as I have now missed two doses of Methotrexate having been told to stop it until results known, I am still taking the other meds Sulfasalazine, Omeprazole, Naproxen and co-codamol. Pleased to say the cough has nearly gone, but on Wednesday I developed a rash on my lower legs/ankle area, nowhere else, it is not itchy, sore or hot, just looks awful, see picture. Anyone any ideas what it may be, do you think this could be related to RD or maybe due to hot weather, although it has been cooler last couple of days. I have done more walking this week but wouldn't think this would be the cause of the rash, and have felt very tired yesterday and today but that will no doubt be the extra walking catching up with me. Just taking it easy, don't feel unwell, but if it's no better by Monday I will try and get an appointment with the Doctor. Your thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Hope everyone is having a good day. X
