Writing this at 4am which let's face it is never a good sign!
I would really appreciate your input about why my wonder drug methotrexate appears to have decided to give it up and go home. For about the last 4 weeks things have been subtly getting worse. At first I thought I was imagining things and then they put my dose up, but now there is no hiding from it.
I am back to a place I thought I had left - at least for more than 3 short months!! Swollen hands pain everywhere temperatures and not coping at work.
I simply cannot not work. Part On my way! Is not an option for me and psychologically I am just not able to think of myself as someone who can't work!!
Is it normal for something like this to happen? Is there anything they can do? Is it even worth me taking the damn methotrexate? At least I could
Be drunk and in pain if I wasn't!
The only way I am surviving at the moment is naproxen which I am rally. It supposed to take due to my inflammatory bowel disease but it's the only way I am even able to get out of bed.
I have a consultant appointment on the 21st. What shall I say??
