I dont really write blogs on here as i dont like to complain about myself, but i feel people on here will understand (i hope!!). Im currently taking sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine but when i last saw my rhuemy nurse i mentioned they weren't really working well, you know how it goes, waking up in a morning in pain, stiff and seriously lacking in energy (took me most of the day just to clean the bathroom), so she mentioned that if im still as bad next time i see her, which is next week, we might try MTX again. Trouble is i started on that and it made me so ill, they suggested injections and/or starting off on a lower dose but the thing is i really dont want to go back on it because of the things i cant do while on it! I spend as much time as i can ouside which means catching the sun and although i dont drink a lot i do like the odd one or two etc etc. I feel ive had to change my life so much because of the RA already and dont want any more complications!! Consider dummy well and truly spat out!! So am i just being plain stubborn?? Answers on a postcard please.....
