I went to the rheumatologist this Tuesday. She said I was to increase mtx from 10mg to 15mg which I did yesterday (Wednesday). Since that day I've had a runny nose and sore throat. My family have had a cold recently so is this just a cold or a reaction to increased dose? I went into chemist this morning to ask what I can take for it. She said nothing and that I was to go straight to the docs today! I've made an appointment for 5 tonight but feel a bit silly going along with a cold? I feel I should give it a few days to see if I feel better..just thought I'd ask your opinion. I know we can't give medical advise on here but what would you do?
