I have had a sore throat, it seems forever! It's not horrendous hence I've not done much about it, but I'm noticing it more and more nowadays.
I've increased my mtx from 10mg to 20mg gradually over the last couple of months, whilst increasing folic acid from 1x5mg to 4x5mg a week. I have worked my way through some anti-imflamatories-more recently celecoxib (which gave me a heart burn type pain) and etoricoxib which I seem to be tolerating.
I'm still flaring though, and have been since last December. Still not back to work either.
I'm due to stop mtx for 2 weeks, which has been agreed by my rheumatologist, as I am to be married. I'll not take it on 15th and 22nd June. I don't want to feel as I currently do when I take it over such a special time. Maybe this break from mtx will help? Or maybe it will get worse before that?
