I started to feel the mtx working about 3 weeks ago. Today, I am still swollen but I have less pain. My question is, Do I need to increase my dose of mtx to reach complete medical remission? or Will I slowly continue to improve over the next couple of months? Is this the best I will be? I still have the odd pain that comes and goes. Is this normal?
If this is the best I can be, I guess I will learn to live with it. I have spent this last year in pain and I am greatful that I have hardly any pain now. It's Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada and I was able to host the holiday dinner. ...I never thought I would be able to host a holiday dinner again. Boy oh boy did I have fun preparing the feast!! My husband tried to help, but I wouldn't let him. There was no stopping me!!!
