Hi all-I was dx'd today and am to start mtx and fa. Low dose to start of 7.5mg/1mg respectively. I have panic disorder and hate/fear taking medication. I've decided I'm going to start on the weekend so I have my husband and no work responsibilities. Doctor said I should get a pneumonia vaccine first. Just need some encouragement. I'm feeling a little anxious and bummed at the same time. I can handle stomach upset and diarrhea (I don't want that though lol) ...just don't want anything messing with my heart-like racing-or head-like dizziness/goofiness. I'm a control freak....but I know I must do this because my foot and ankle is shot (MRI that lead to the rheumy appt) along with all the other painful joints, Schamberg's disease (rash), and fatigue. UGH. Thank you.
