This past Saturday I took my fourth dose of MTX- now on the required dose. The 2 weeks before, I felt rough both weeks. My ESR was raised so upped steroids and that helped last week.
However, I took the dose Saturday and felt wiped out within a couple of hours, and have felt awful all week. I can hardly walk up the stairs my calf muscles hurt and I ache all over. Calf muscles never been a problem. I feel dizzy and just yuk ...... my GP (Who is really nice), doesn't seem to give any serious consideration to side effects and says kindly, Oh don't put thought out there like that, lets give it 3 months before we make a decision.
The thought of feeling like I have flu for another 2 months is too much ...... any thoughts please guys?
I am meant to be having bloods again and appointment in the last week of April, that seems an awful long way away right now.
Many thanks in advance ......
