Well, I've spent 3.5 years in a constant flare and have rejected/not responded to any med out there since I lost Remicade. At 6 weeks, "just a bit" feels like good news. Remember it takes a while for the mtx to really kick in and help.
PS - This cold is killing me. That also makes it hard to really evaluate. I'm completely exhausted, my eyes hurt, my nose is totally congested... Hard to know if I'm feeling more energy / doing better Crohn's wise when the cold has got me so low. I really feel like MTX is going to help me... So long as my blood work continues to come back ok.
One more positive sign - my temps have been pretty much normal the last two weeks... Again coincidence or mtx? I need more time to know, but I'll take what I can get!
