I have asymptomatic PBC (positive AMA test) and a month ago the Rheumatolgist confirmed what I had suspected, I have Fibromyalgia. In my follow up today he also dropped the bombshell that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and has put me on Methotrexate. Is anyone else taking this? If so, what's your experience with it? The possible side effects have frightened me somewhat, even given the benefit if they work.
A year ago I was working as a carer, pushing a wheelchair around, just finishing my degree at Uni and my head the fibro has my head so foggy that I can barely concentrate to read, I can barely walk some days, and I just don't feel like me any more. The DLA won't listen to me, I dont think my family understand how shit I feel. And the fatigue? My partner is great to his credit but the rest? This whole autoimmune thing is really getting on top of me!
Sorry, what started as a question has become a bit of a rant, I think I needed it off my chest!
