I should have mentioned that I am also taking MTX. The arthritis and fatigue started a few days before my weekly dose (I took the MTX on Wed). Maybe this is a little flare???
This whole flare thing has me confused! I guess you can have flares that can last days and others that can last months?
Hi keepingthefaith- Its really hard to go on with life believe me!! Most mornings I have to force myself out of bed to get moving to get to work. I work full time plus have a 2 year old. Its not easy. My house is a disaster and I don't cook much. I do what I can do when I get what little energy I do get at times. We had a birthday party to go to today and we didn't go because I had no energy most of the day. When we get invited to things I just explain to whoever is having the party that I may/may not be there. Most of family/friends understand and know that I'm sick.
I was on vicodin but it was many years ago and wasn't on it that long so I can't really help you with that. Hopefully someone else can.
There is so many things I want to do this summer and we haven't done one of them. I want to get my son to the beach and I just dont think that is going to happen this summer. I'm really bummed and its bothering me, but I also have to tell myself that getting myself better right now is more important than making sure my son goes to a million things that he won't even remember going to yet. There are plenty more summers and hopefully I won't be sick for all of them!!!
I am currently taking just 7.5 mg of MTX a week...maybe my fatigue is more disease related then. I take 1 mg of folic acid a day.
I was honestly starting to feel better recently but man this week has been a turn-around! I guess it goes with the territory...
I hope all of you get feeling better soon!
