Hope this morning finds you well and happy?
Just wanted to ask you well-informed people a question:
I started on my 20mg (or should it be ml as it's a liquid) metoject pen injection Friday. The previous day I was started on prednisolone for 4 wks (20mg, 15mg, 10mg then 5mg) Yesterday (Saturday) afternoon I developed an itchy raised rash on the lower part of my back. The last time I'd taken my weekly tablet form of methotrexate (20mg) was 22nd June (as you may have followed my posts- I was married 24th June ) I took 30mg of prednisolone for 7 days over that 2wk period to keep things at bay.
My esr is at 88 and my crp is 105. I'm also slightly anaemic.
I took an antihistamine last night but the rash is still there...
I'm wondering if it's the methotrexate or the prednisolone and what to do?
I had another blood test to check my iron on Friday...felt like a pin cushion by the end of the week! Also worked out I'd spent 9 hrs waiting either in the doc's and 2 hospitals last week!! Oh what fun 😴
In agony this morning with my wrists (mainly)- hence the early start in order to get my omeprazole in early to be able to eat then take my steroids. Hope I didn't wake anyone 😇
Btw- I want to move my metoject back to being a Wednesday- should I go forward , maybe 2 days at a time, or backwards 1/2 a day at a time - had it last Friday and it encroaches on my weekend!!!😄-any ideas?
