Can I just say thanks to everyone that replied to my first blog, the support was amazing!
I took my first dose of MTX on Saturday and laid off the folic acid after being sick when I took it Friday, took another dose of folic acid and stayed determined to get on with day and forget about it however had the same symptoms as before gurgling tummy, sickness. I did some googling and found that you can get these side effects especially in high doses anything over 1g is considered high, I'm on 5g.... Maybe it's just a case of my body getting used to it but if it carries on I will stop taking it.
Rang my GP this morning for advice they have nothing yet back from my Consultant so know nothing about what I'm on but they are going to get duty doctor to ring me....so rang my consultant's secretary and got an answer machine but did get the RA helpline number which was also on answer machine and to ring back this afternoon....Grrrrrrrr!
I've not gone to work today, maybe I need to take some time off to adjust to diagnosis and the meds and I have worked all the way through before all this .....I will have to see.
My friend texted me earlier to say that she had to have her 9 month old puppy put down over weekend....so that bounced me back down to reality, he was gorgeous.
Thanks again for the support, sorry if I'm a bit whingey and I hope you're all having a good day.
