Aww Stacie I am sorry to hear that you are hurting so bad. I have been on Mehotrexate for a long time now, well it seems like a long time, a couple of years now anyway and recently my Rheumie tried to lower my dosage. He told me that it would take 6 to 8 weeks before i noticed a difference in how I would feel. Boy was he wrong. Within 3 weeks I was in agony again, swollen fingers and joints and I just hurt so bad. It took me a week of calling his office to get ahold of him, he told me to go back to the dosage that I was on and he would try again in about
6 months. So I feel for you. I want to get off of it but there is no way my body is ready for that yet.
I hope you can get some relief shortly, everyone else here has given you great advice. Good luck, I hope you feel better soon.
