I'm newly diagnosed with what the rheumatologist describes as "an unusual presentation of RA", essentially because it started 4 months ago overnight after food poisoning. It was assumed to be Reactive Arthritis as it follows that pattern, and has peaked and is now much less debilitating. However, blood show the anti-bodies that indicate RA so I've had steroids and now MTX. I'm really hoping to hear some early experiences of MTX.
I've been warned about nausea and feeling yuk etc - but is this just the day after my dose - or forever?
Also, do intake the folic acid every day (except MTX day) or just the day after MTX (the rheumatologist wasn't clear)?
I'm so grateful for any early experiences you guys have had on this stuff, thank you
