Yup its part of the disease.
LBJ-is the mtx still giving you a hard time? Any sign of it helping you yet?
It did last week it hit me pretty hard. My Gi told me to stop it and he would call and check on me this week.
Well he didn't call so I assume he forgot about me. I decided to give it another try and took it last
night. Its not as bad as last weeks was. But I'm also back down to 25 mg of prednisone. I really
think it has something to do with being up higher on the prednisone. I also think it might have
kicked in because last time I was down to 25mg of pred my joints started hurting again. They
actually feel a little good. (knock on wood) This was #5. I'll know for sure next week when I
drop down to 20mg because thats where everything really flared back up for me.
I'm getting just a little excited about it now!! LOL I'm going to tell doc though that if I get
hit hard again that's it, I'm done. I can't keep going through that. Last week was really bad
that I almost went to ER.
