Hiya. Not been on here for a while. Twins are now 4 and I hear their school on Tuesday!
In the mean time my RA has been ok. Not as good as last year but better then 1st diagnosis.
I've been on 25mg MTX injections (with 1.5g Sulpha bid and Hydrox too) for the past 2 years. The nausea is getting worse. These past few days have been unbearable. Don't know what to do with myself. I was prescribed submuccosal anti-nausea drugs but I really struggle with the dissolving and ineffectiveness.
Has anyone else suffered this. It has been suggested that when nausea starts with MTX then it's the start of the body no longer tolerating it and can start to show the start of the MTX not working. I seem to be developing a nodule on my finger (it's always been the one affected by the RA most with tenosynovitis at diagnosis).
I'm struggling with nausea. Fatigue not too bad (think my running helps, but has peaks and troughs) pain not too bad either.
Any suggestions welcomed.
Oh and my consultant left. So my review in February was with a register who had never met me and only worked that week. On my list is speaking to my GP to try to get onto the lead rheumy's list, by writing a letter.
TIA and Happy Easter
