Hello, I am new to this site and have had RA now for 5 years. Sadly whilst working abroad I had major problems getting medications and my rheumatologist just kept increasing my dose of methotrexate until I became an emergency admission to the hospital with severe breathing problems. I have now recovered reasonably well but am still often breathless but have lost my sense of taste and my vision has deteriorated badly in the past week and I am still waiting for a rheumatology appointment. I am 66 now and was quite fit until my diagnosis. Any advice would be appreciated
