I am always reading the posts, being new here and all, I have so much to learn still. You guys are really great the way you support each other. I hope as I learn more, I will be able to support and give advice, too! I just feel so GREEN right now!
Anyway, I am on my 5th month of MTX-6 pills once a week-I am still having swelling in my hands, wrists, and knees. My hubby who never comments even said...what wrong with your fingers?? Thanks, huh? I had one really bad swollen a while back and did have my regular DR check it since he was faster to get into than the Rheumy and he said..yep, you still have arthritis. That is why I like him...straight and to the point with a bit of sarcasm and humor.
On the MTX, should I still have the swelling like I do? Sometimes, I even have to take my watch off and it used to be loose on me (not gaining weight-losing actually-MTX makes me queasy). Also, since I started taking it, I seem to have more migraines. about once every week now instead of every couple weeks. Anyone else have that? Also, my hands and wrists seem to get more stiff as the afternoon wears on...shouldn't they loosed up? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a great week!
