Saw a brilliant doctor at the hospital today. She took the time to listen and answer my many questions (palindromic or ra and can I take nsaids along with mtx when my pain increases etc). She then did thorough examination before discussing options.
My blood results r showing raised esr and crp again with a resulting das of 4.7 so we agreed to start me on sulphasalazine on top of my 25mg of subcut mtx.
Lets hope this reduces my flare ups finally. Wow, what a difference it makes having an understanding doctor rather than critical one.
