Missed the appt. w/Dr. this Wed. for injection of methetextrate and slowly since Wed. have been feeling more and more fatigued. today it's very bad. I took the 3 mgs of medrol. I called the Dr. and asked about taking 2 more mgs of medrol. She said, "Yes" to do it. I did, felt better for a few hours. now again, feeling very fatigued. heavy fatigue, some dizziness, beginning to get a headache. It's 11:10pm here, don't want to call her again. She is a solo practioner with several physician's assistants working with her. I believe it would be her, who would have to return the call. don't want to do that. Was thinking that this somehow may be some kind of methetextrate withdrawal -- I usually get 10 mgs and then -- now, -- nothing. We have very bad weather and extreme cold - 20 degrees below zero, which is dangerous. NYC is not good with ploughing. so Wed. travel was almost impossible . couldn't make the appt. and didn't want to be waiting hours in the cold for paratransit to pick me up. If anyone has ideas on this, would you let me know? will just get through to next Wed. thanks. all my best, Whittlesey
