I am after some advice, I was put on Methotrexate 17.5 mg, this causes extreme sores in my mouth ulcers and boils in my gums, I was told by the Dr ( not Rheumatologist) to stop, I have done and it's now 12 weeks without this drug, yesterday I could hardly walk due to extreme pain in my feet, I have also swollen knuckles and this morning I have pain and stiffness in my hips and back, I feel like an old crock, I am worried about going back into this drug but I think I will have to. I am going to ring the Dr tomorrow.
I saw my consultant last week who said to monitor the condition without the drug and if I feel a flare up to get a blood test, I am sero-negative so the inflammation does not show, I am so confused about what to do but if I do nothing I fear I am putting my health in danger.
Advice would be appreciated.
Thank you everyone
