Starz, first welcome to the forum. Of cource we aren't doctors but perhaps can help you decide what to talk to your doctor about.
I have had RA for over 10 years now and recently had a bad flare and was also put on mtx. That did help me but I know that the next thing my doc was going to try if it wasn't enough was Enbrel. Has your Rhuemy talked to you about Enbrel or about what he/she wants to do next?
Please feel free to tell us more about yourself, join in on some of the other threads or ask any questions you have.
It's a weekend so things might be a little slow right now but others will be along to introduce themselves and offer advice.
