Hi! I was diagnosed last year and started on mtx 25mg injections immediately. Have been on them now for 9 months. They have reduced my symptoms in the past couple months apart from the odd flare days, but I am beginning to feel that I cant tolerate the side effects any longer. I feel very sick for 2 days after taking it and cant function to be a good mummy for my kids. My hair has started to fall out which is stressing me out. I spend injection day feeling really anxious about the upcoming injection and have started to get panic attack reactions if i see the needle or medication. My hubby has to prepare it without me looking and inject me while i close my eyes. I have never had anxiety over needles before and i think it is just because my body knows what is coming! Has anyone else gone through this?
