Just over 6 weeks in and on balance I think OH is responding to the methotrexate. In general and most of the time his joint pain isn't as bad as it was. But when it is bad, it seems more painful than ever. He's had particularly bad gout type pain in one thumb and one foot. Also really bad cramps in feet and lower legs. Does anyone else get this, because he's worried it's to do with the DVT he had just after starting prednisolone.
Main question though is about pain relief other than the steroid. Until now he's just used paracetamol, but sometimes that only works for half an hour, if at all. What do you all take and who prescribes it? Or do you think he needs to get the prednisolone put back up (he's down to one a day now).
