I have had this disease for over 9 years and thankfully been in remission for a number of years. My consultant suggested that I should try and reduced my drugs, which I have very slowly over the last two years, now down to 5mg methotrexate, folic acid and 3 cotrimoxide but for the last few days I have had an upset stomache, and feeling very tired. Of course I am suspicious that this awful disease is slowly coming back. Anyone been down this route, do I wait and see what happens over the next few days or should I increase dose age. Just had a blood test done for consultants appointment 4 May but it's holidays.
I don't want to go back down the road of infusions etc, I maybe being silly, it could just be an upset stomach but I think something isn't right. Guess I should go by gut feeling.
I was hoping that I could get off the drugs completely anyone managed that yet?
