Well, just an update, but I found out the inflamed gums were due to the Methotrexate. What a strange side effect. It has me wondering if it is doing that to my gums, what else is it doing to my body. I am also losing more hair. I get so freaked out when I read about side effects. Plus I've read if you take Methotrexate with Remicade, you are at a higher risk of cancer....trying to figure out if I should ask to get off Methotrexate. I'm worried about my symptoms coming back though, especially the arthritis where I couldn't even walk. Decisions, decisions.
