Don't know what to think.,,I want MTX added to my sulfa and hydroxy meds....I am "So Done" with being told that my RA is mild as it slowly progresses....My hands have been severely swollen and painful for the last 6 months....I have never had problems with my knees...but guess what?...My knees are now swollen... I asked for MTX, to tell you the truth, I begged for it....My rheumy was stunned at how swollen my knees are....My rheumy has added on 3 mgs of prednisone a day and wants to reassess me on July 25th. He says that if I haven't reached remission by then, he will give me MTX. Does this sound normal to anyone else?
Thank you for any advice you can give me
