Just thought I would write a quick update.
I am still suffering the affects of mtx for about 50 hrs after I take it. I take it on saturdays, I feel nausea, unsettled stomach etc on sunday & monday. Today I am suffering queeziness, so I have made some improvement as it use to be wednesday, before I would get any relief. Will the effects become less with time or will I always suffer for this length of time?
Got a date when the doctor says I can return to work. The wk beginning the 9th Jan. I am looking forward to it, but I am worried about the tiredness. Others on here work, so they cope with it, so I think in time I will cope also. I only work part time 3 days, but still it worries me. I've not told work that I walk with a limp now, should I?
This cold has reached its peak last nite, so I am feeling pretty awful now. I am hot and cold throughout the night and I am waking up. There is still heat in my hands with some swelling. I have respite it seems from knee pain at the moment, so I should be grateful for at least that.
Son went back to school on monday. He is more or less recovered, just a slight cough now. But this is his last wk, before he breaks up for the christmas break.
The dreaded bloods tomorrow. If all goes well with my bloods, at my rheumy appt next week I should go onto 1 month blood monitoring next yr. So keep your fingers crossed for me as you all know I hate the bloods.
I've also got my last session at the physio. I am having a wax bath - lovely jubley.
Ok that's me for a while. Hope you all have a good pain free day.
