I am now on my third week low dose MTX 7.5 working way up to more mgs, I seems to me that my Fbro has just gone absolutely Mad in the past week, and the pain is excruciating I take plenty of pain meds for the RA and also have been taking Hydroxy as well as Celebrex and More, I take 12 hour extended release pain meds and 5 mg rapid release as needed, Sems they are not working on the fibro pain. I will discuss this with my GP next week, but was wonderingi if anyone had a similar situation

Hi Joy,

After only 3 weeks on a low dose it's unlikely that the MTX is working yet, so I don't think that's related to why you're getting more pain. But that's just my opinion as I'm not a doctor so do discuss with your GP. Sorry that you're in so much pain. Pollyx

Thanks Polly I know it will be a while before they get the correct dose as this is early days on the MTX, but I can not imagine what has caused this Fibro toflare with so much vengeance The pain is awful, I cant wait till my next apptss, but i am going to have to suffer with this till then, wow

Hi as Polly says the mtx wont be working yet. drugs such as amityptyline, gapentin or dulotextine are good for fibro pain.. not sure if you are taking any of these?. if not have a chat with GP/ consultant x
