I'm currently taking 50ml of methotrexate 0.8 (injections) and plaquenil 200mg twice a day, and folic acid every day. And I'm on a 21 day 4mg of steroids. There are days that the pain is unbearable!

That’s a lot I’m takin 0.4 20mg weekly. I wouldn’t be able to increase any further. I’m always nauseas and have increased fatigue for a day or 2 after the week injection

I understand about being tired and fatigue! I have flare-ups, like Lupus. I was approved through my insurance for long-term remittance, so I won't lose my job.

Girl, me too! I emailed my boss around 4pm, to inform her that I will not be in tomorrow morning. I'm sitting on the couch as we speak! Shoulders, hips, neck, and my arms are killing me!

Oh dear Sylvia 😔 Please do rest up as much as possible. I know it can be frustrating for you, having to limit yourself even more in what you can do. But you must rest. You have the help & support of your family, & also support from us lot.

In other words STOP WHAT YOUR DOING ✋

Take care x
