Thank you all who responded to my “what to expect at my first visit to rheumatologist” post. It went well and my blood tests/exam quickly led to a diagnosis of RA.
He gave me a months worth of prednisone (10mg/day) and a weekly dose of methotrexate of 10mg. Plus 1000micograms folic acid a day (except mtx days of course).
I also have MS, so I am kinda numb at having another diagnosis. I’m not on DMT for my MS right now. Waiting to see what my next MRI looks like.
I am happy to hopefully get some pain relief.
About me: 40 year old female with an amazingly supportive husband and an adorable almost 3y old little boy. I work from home and live in Kentucky, USA.
Looking forward to getting and giving support!
