Doctor just phoned with results of my chest x-rays. Pleased to say they are clear. He said to restart the Methotrexate this week. When I asked him what dose to take, i.e 15mg which I started on in April or 20mg which I increased to three weeks before the cough started he said to restart at 20mg and if the cough gets worse than it is now ( about 75% better now) to stop immediately. That surprised me really as I expected to restart at the lower dose. I have left a message for Rheumatology nurse, it was answerphone so don't think she will be in touch for two or three days. I have an appointment with her on 30th July anyway so long to wait. So I will restart Methotrexate and see what happens, hopefully all will be ok. Hope you all are feeling ok today. I am going to cut grass now. X
