I had my first appointment at the rheumatology clinic 6 weeks ago where they diagnosed me with PMR and gave me a Depo-Mendrone injection. This wore off last week and I was in a lot of pain. I phoned the clinic and they put a prescription for 10mg daily dose of Prednisolone in the post. This seems to be working quite well.
This morning I have received from the nurse at the clinic a leaflet about Methotrexate and a note saying this would be prescribed at my next appointment on 30th July.
Is anyone taking Methotrexate? Is it working? Even in the leaflet the clinic sent me it does not mention PMR as a disorder that could benefit.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
