Hi all things aren't good today! I'm in ALOT of pain. Everything hurts and i'm just so tired and emotional from it all. Taking pain relief every 2hrs but not really doing anything. If it's like this still tomorrow might try and see the dr on Monday but then what can she do? My friend has bought me a tens machine but don't know when she'll be dropping it in. I guess i'll just cover myself in hot water bottles and see If that helps. Had my second mtx injection yesterday. Was a bit achey after my one last week so maybe it's just that and it'll pass by tomorrow. Anyone else on mtx injections find this? I'll stop rambling now. Just feel so lousy :-(

i dont take injections or mtx so I am sorry I cannot help you with symptoms. But I did want to say I hope you feel better soon.  I know what it likes to feel awful all the time, without re lief in sight. Hope tomorrow sees relief for you.:)

I also take MTX but not by injection.  I know that it takes awhile to kick in and so sorry to hear you are in pain.  I know how miserable it can be to hurt! Can you call your doctor for some pred or pain medication until the MTX begins working? I hope you feel better soon!

Hi momto3! Yeah i'm on pred for a while and depot steroid injections. Went to dr this morn who spoke to Rheumy. I'm down for apt asap. I've been given liquid morphine. I have to take half a spoon first dose then full spoon If need to after. Can take it every 4hrs 24/7. Have to go back weds because by then He should know what dose I need and I will then be given it slow release tablet form. If after another 3 injections i'm still in pain, Rheumy will see me in emergency clinic. Lets hope i'm on the up now.
