Hello! I've been on methotrexate for about two months now and I've not noticed any difference in pain levels. My hands are in constant pain with swelling pretty much every day! I keep thinking this is what's known as a flare up but it seems to be lasting a long time. Just wondered about others' experiences. How long do flare ups tend to last? Or does that fluctuate? I was diagnosed with RA in April and apart from about 5 weeks after a steroid injection, I've had pain. Thank you for any comments on this!
