Well, stupidly I decided that I did t want to take methotrexate any more and stopped taking it 4 weeks ago. Up until 4 days ago I was feeling very pleased that I’d taken the decision to do that. Woke up 4 days ago with severe pain in top of thighs and the pelvic area. After agonising (physically and mentally) over this I decided to up the steroids to15mg to do a “ mopping
up” taper over 12 days to get back down to 9mg. However, even 15mg didn’t ease the pain. I couldn’t walk properly and found it so hard to even get in the car. Thank goodness my lovely daughter was doing Christmas. Today, the pain has eased but have decided to start the mx again. I despair of ever getting rid of this horrible illness. I’ve had it for 4.5 years!
