My husband has recently been diagnosed with RA and is on methotrexate 15mgs weekly which he has been taking for 6 weeks and prednisolone 15 mgs daily. In addition to this he is needing co codamol to help with the pain.
We have a holiday booked to Mauritius in mid October . We have just come back from Menorca and his feet were quite swollen. He has had other symptoms which I feel may be side effects of prednisolone as he has been taking this for two months and is hoping once the methotrexate is more effective, he can reduce and stop the oral steroids.
We are currently a bit concerned about the prospect of a long haul flight but are just hoping things will settle down in time to allow us to go. I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts/ advice.
