when I was diagnosed with RA five years ago, I was started on sulfasalazine, it didn't seem to suit me so I was given hydrochlorquine( excuse my spelling)
I was on that four four years with a kenalog every three months
In january of this year I was started on methetrexate, I did ok at first then I got mouth ulcers, cold sores and ear and throat infection, and a rash up both my arms, I was advised to stop taking the medication until I was back right again.
I started on it again on just two tablets(I had been on 6) then had to up it to three two weeks later which I did.I take them on a sunday, on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday I feel rotten, I am so tired and achy all last week my right had was swollen( I had a kenalog two weeks ago because all my joints had flared up)
I have realised that since about march a pattern has formed,three days feeling dreadful Thursday not so bad Friday ok, really good Saturday then have to take methetrexate again on Sunday
So today in my wisdom I have now decided I don't want to take it, but now I'm scared, please help........
