Hello- my wise crew! Being hopeful someone can help me. I have returned north, to the cold, non- sunshine state after 3 weeks in southern sunshine! Presently on methotrexate since last week in march and have since lowered from 17.5 mg on April 1 to 15, then from 15 to 12.5 of prednisone since May 5th. Now the problem is- I'm very manic, upset, anxious, and snappy at times. Also, some physical symptoms have returned. It's similar to moods I had at higher dose of prednisone? The rhuemy said it wasn't the dose lowering and stay with 12.5 until I see her in 2 weeks. Any thought as to what the heck it could be? I know I also, didn't have my folic for about a week, and started that back too. I dislike me right now, so can imagine what my love is thinking 🙄😳 any thought would be helpful
