This is the first time I have ever written a blog. I have had RA for 3 years ( started at age 60 ) and was doing extremely well on Sulfasalazine until a few months ago when I felt I had gone right back to where I started with all the pain and stiffness but more so. Tonight I am going to start taking Methotrexate for the first time ( 10 mgs MTX followed by 5mgs folic acid 4 days later) and to be honest I am scared. I have read about all the side effects and just hope I am one of the lucky ones who can tolerate it well. At least if it works I will be able to play with my young grandchildren again. Wish me luck!
