okay i typed this and then hit a key and lost it all.
so the March 19 I was confirmed to have RA.
this is my 3rd week to be taking MTX 2.5 mg three times a week
I also take Folic Acide 2mg a day.
Vitamin D 50000unt once a week.
oh, i can't take some of the usual meds for RA due to the seizure disorder.
for pain I take Meloxicam 15 mg. I have to divide this up due to the entire pill makes me loopy. I have been on this for 6 weeks.
(I also take meds for Epilespy (13 years), PD, RLS, depresstion for 2/ 1/2 years )
so i feel rotten today, like I have the flue, yes I know this is a symptom of RA
Saturday I over did, hear ringing in my right ear for a bit then stopped maybe 20 minutes.
the next day mid morning, I felt like I needed to pee but then only could a bit. other times I went just fine. I seem to be doing this some every day. but again i can pee just fine during the day. (sorry to be so frank)
I just hurt, hurt. some days not that much but today yucky! the last time I took the MTX was Sunday night. I am due to take on tonight.
so do you think this is just how it will feel until my body get use to the MTX. I Know I will discuss all this with my Dr on April 10.
just tired of some days seem pretty much okay then others terrible.
I know i am lucky and could be so much worse, so much. but i just wonder if anyone else has the weird side effects I mentioned.
thanks for reading.
God is in control thanks goodness cause I wouldn't know what to do. heehee
