Hello all and thanks for this forum.
Feeling low, got switched to injecting MTX due to side effects with oral, now have very painful chest infection so told to stop MTX and try to get rid of infection and then get back to the RA struggle. Feel like I will never feel well again one way and another. One daughter wept 'why are you always sick?' when I came out of the GP, and looked bewildered by it all - like me. Good question. I have explained autoimmune to all my kids but why should any of us understand 'why' when it is just a shock out of the blue for all of us, with no reason? I used to be very active and healthy, now feel I'm just ping ponging from one health problem to the next and drugs not making a dent so far. Had steroid drip last week as nurse said it should work like a miracle, well it made no difference at all and I have had flare and now this infection in the week since.
