Last year 2015 April, I was diagnosed with RA. In May I was started on plequenil tabs. In august prednisolon 5mg was added coz plequenil couldnt work alone. In september was put on Mtx 10mg per week, I stopped Plequenil and Prednisolon. The pain subsided tremendously only for it to reappear in April this year with vegeance. In September, Rheumy doubled Mtx to 20mg per week. The pain trippled, never been this sick before, my nose got dry and developed bleeding sores. Having another appointment with Rheumy on 27.10.2016, he said I need to change meds. My next dose of Mtx is tomorrow 17.10.2016. Am pretty scared and feel like not taking the Mtx but am also confused whether it is the Mtx causing me to b sick or my RA has surpassed the limit. I am still taking Megafol tabs 5mg daily. Has anyone experienced this before or it is only me
