After my 5th appt with the Rheumy Doc I am now being prescribed MTX. My blood tests came back ok and due to the positive result with the steroid jab, she had said its time to start the ball rolling fully on my treatment.
I have been attending the early Rheumy clinic since June and have been monitored closely since being given Hydroxy, Arcoxia and steriods. Hydroxy was not for me tho due to side effects.
I have been advised to take it at night at the start at the weekend due to side effects ie nausea etc so next Friday is D day for me.
Strange thing is everyone keeps asking me how I feel about it but to be honest I am not sure, don't really know how to feel as i have been in pain for the last 7 months so I am tending to think positively as I might get some normality back.
Has anyone else ever felt like this?
From a long term point of view which is what I think all my family and friends are thinking of I am thinking more about day to day really and how to manage the pain.
Anyway best have a good weekend this week incase i am out of action next weekend as I am starting my meds Friday evening.
