Evening to everyone, Im on a bit of a downer today, /week 2 of taking MTX, also started hydrochoroquine last week too. had a bad night couldn't sleep, in a lot of pain in my hips & lower back, My hands are not so bad as they were, though still swollen.
Had a pounding headache, nauseous this morning, feeling down & tearful all day.Is this normal? New to treatment, I was only diagnosed 3 weeks ago, not sure what to expect, everything is scary, the RA/ the side effects/ how Im feeling. Im working full time & trying to cope with the RA & tablets too!
My Husband is registered diabled ( after breaking his back twice in rta 's) & Im his carer, at the moment he is having to look after me! His in abilities & mine are making us laugh!
I think I might be starting the menopause Im 50 in April, getting more of my 'hot moments' I had a hysterectomy 8years ago so wont have the usual first signs that I am.
sorry, I sound like a moaner tonight, but it feels better getting this down rather sitting here worrying & getting more depressed about RA.
Thank You to anyone who takes the time to read this.
