Hello and happy new year!
I was diagnosed in August and started 25mg mtx in Sept. Before the holidays I had started to feel a little better, less pain and more energy. Then had a series of coughs and colds followed by strep throat and was feeling rubbish again. Over xmas have been flaring worse than ever and now is very painful in my knees which is a new one for me, and making it very difficult to get around.
My question is how long before you saw a real difference from the mtx and if there is no improvement how long before you tried something else. My rheumatoid did say that when she sees me next in Feb she would add something else to the mtx if I wasn't feeling better, but not sure what!
