Latest meeting with my Rheumatologist was so disappointing. He wasn't interested in my other joints just my hands. They aren't flared so wasn't interested. He didn't look up from his notes. Didn't really listen to me. Been on 15mg Methatrexate and wasn't bothered by my lethargy or migraines which I've never had before. Has just decided to up Mtx to 17.5mg and will see me in three months. I feel kind of left out in the open with no real support or guidance from him. He also told me to stop taking the folic acid. Now I'm concerned about that as thought I would need more. Yes it gives me reflux but I don't want to get the affects of not having enough. He wasn't interested in my concerns. Half of me wants to keep taking the folic acid and half of me wonders if I should stop it. I shouldn't be feeling like this after an appointment.
