So I saw the rheumy consultant today - so much better than my usual doctor - turns out she hasnt been handling me or my RA correctly and things should have happened at my first appointment 3 months ago and she didnt do them! Anyway, the sulfa doesnt seem to be working by itself, so he has put me on methotrexate too - I am only 26, and would like a family at some point - no plans for at least the next 5 years, but I am still worried.
The side effects and experiences people have had with it sound horrendous - I just wanted to know your experiences with it to prepare myself for the worst, but also have my fingers crossed that it is the wonder drug I need! Am on steroids for the next 12 weeks, fun, pain free times again I hope, until the methotrexate has kicked in.
Any comments or advice would be welcomed :oD
