My name is Heather and I am new to this board. I have been on the Crohn's disease board for a little while. I have been having some pretty severe joint pain and swelling for the last two months. I was able to finally see a Rheumatologist this past week and she said that my symptoms are all pointing to RA. I will be starting Methotrexate and prednisone to try and get this joint stuff under control.
I was wondering if any of you all have taken Remicade and Methotrexate at the same time? I am just wondering what to expect with both. I am often pretty tired with after my remicade treatment. Is it going to be even worse now that I am on both?
Diagnosed in March 2001, resection in August 2001
Currently on Remicade, Pentasa, Entocort, Prenatal vitamin
Have been on Cipro, Imuran, Asacol, 6mp, and prednisone (for whenever a bad one comes along)
