Here we go!
So as you see, nothing is exactly conclusive & direct. I hope this is at least useful for the most part. As you see, I like labs! I think they're cool. And they're fun to analize.
Anything else just let me know.
Hey Yalinda, I don't know much about methotrexate, but they did not want to put my mother on that drug (she had mctd) because she had developed interstitial lung disease. Methotrexate can be very very hard on your lungs. Perhaps that's why your doctor wants you to have a second opinion for the spots on your lungs. Maybe MTX could make them worse? In any case, second opinions never hurt.
no TB here! it was negative and yes my doctor was concerned about the lungs and mtx thing! i guess a second opinion on both is a good thing just feel like i am betraying someone..... i am kinda a person who never INTENDS to hurt anyone and feel like i am sneaking behind these doctors backs.... i know it sounds crazy and i understand the logistics and everyone does it but i have trouble and guilt, ya guilt, thats it! i always worry about what others think and feel guilty if i think i might hurt someone else because i am sensitive... anyway enough therapy about my personal insecurities lol i am going to do it esp the lung thing cuz her was not a good doctor but i like my rhuemmy, but i know like doesnt cut it when my body is at risk with a strong drug.... i hope i dont end up lost and confussed in this ordeal i felt like at least i had answers for all the pain and now i feel like i am looking with more questions again
oh well i will not fret yet! yesterday is gone tomorrow, will be, and today just is! no matter what i think, so be it!
thanks everyone i may need support on this in the future if i procrastinate too much ~* yalinda
