THis is my first post, my son was diagnosed with RA just a month ago. HE had a cateract, then had surgery on it. His eye flared up like crazy! Then after tons of tests they ruled out everything except RA causing the inflamed eye, which had caused the cateract over the years! His eyes are brown so we never noticed, it never slowed him down, he plays hockey, skiis, bikes etc.
My question is he has been on methotrexate for about 4 weeks. Gave him his 4th weekly does yesterday, but he has a wicked phlemy cough. HAd a cold a few weeks ago. MY husband took him to the doc where they swabbed but thought just viral. HE still has the cough. SHould I take him back to doc's? (hospital? its Saturday)
HE also has another eye surgery next week, so I am worried the cough may affect his ability to go under general anethesia...
DOes anyone have experience with kiddo's on methotrexate?
