Hello ladies (and gentlemen),
I was recently diagnosed with MCTD. I was prescribed Methotrexate but have not taken it for fear of the side effects. I go to my rheumy next week and I am afraid to tell her that I've instead been taking herbal remedies.
More than anything, I have been a bit depressed due to the diagnosis. My symptoms are not as bad as some of those in a support group I belong to but I am scared since I am not following doctor's orders.
I hope to find out more from you with more experience in this dreadful disease.
Blessings to all. Thank you for having me.
