Hello everyone. I have been taking methotrexate now for four months. Recently I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia and put on amitriptyline which I have taken for three weeks. I have no swelling now. I am doing very well with walking and can do a mile before my knees start to hurt. However my neck is constantly painful and my hands and arms hurt. Every evening my arms and legs feel shaky and burning inside and the pain in my hands is awful.
I hate to sound like I am complaining as I know I'm very lucky to be walking and still albeit slowly doing my everyday tasks. I just would like to know if my symptoms are standard for RA and what to expect.
Thank you in advance for any advice. Every day I read the comments on here and think it is such a good thing to share.
