I suffer with rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatoid fibrosis. Have been taking methotrexate for 4 weeks now and find I can move a lot easier but still get pains in my joints. Some days it goes to different joints and today I have it in my jaw which is the worse pain ever. I have been told methotrexate does not remove the pain so I take quite a few painkillers when it's really bad. I have a very good husband who does a lot for me like helping to get dressed , my daughter comes and cleans for me as I get out of breath easily.
