Hiya all. Long story but I'm currently on my 2nd antibiotic for a severe chest infection (had a cough for 8 weeks) and on-top of that I was admitted to A&E last night after passing out after going blue whilst standing having a conversation with my MIL harp on about changing my diet... Ive developed a wheeze and been put on Salbutamol inhalers and 40mg of pred a day for 2 days, tomorrow being my last, then back to my regular pred dose. I've been told to stop MTX (was on 25mg injection a week) Has anyone experienced issues with their lungs after being on MTX? How did it present? Ive rung NRAS and they've been their usual very helpful selves and Arthritis Research too, but would like to hear from others who have. Im sure its not it...could be a viral wheeze...just interested.
Please be assured if you have just started this drugs that it can be excellent at controlling RA (its been good for me) and its very rare to develop lung issues from Methotrexate so please dont be worried.
