I started having issues back in August of 2017 and finally seen a rheumatologist today. I have been diagnosed with RA and taken off diclofenac sod er 100mg tab once a day (which helped a little) and placed on Prednisone(temporary) until my labs and xray results come back. At which time if safe to fo so I will be placed on methotrexate.. I'm worried and scared but ready to get on something to help me quit hurting so bad. I need to get to work just got custody of my grandson so have to help hubby with added expenses. My question is is the methotrexate the only meds you guys were placed on or do they prescribe other meds... Forgot to ask doc that bit will as soon as I go back.. How did you guys feel after being placed on that med? Were you able to stay working? Thank you for any and all responses..
