Have been on methotrexate for a few weeks, took third doze today. Felt really bad after first one, but have been ok today .
It is helping my rash - nearly totally clear, which has been unheard of in the last 2 years, but have also stopped my plaquinel which has caused my hands, right one in particular to be swollen (almost on a daily basis) The pain comes and goes, but its bad today. Has anyone else found this, and when will it get better???
I do feel a little less fatigued - managed to visit a friend one night last week, but keep forgetting i'm not wonder woman and get totally annoyed when i hit the wall.
Just wish my hands would deflate - its double the size of normal just now!! My face was also slightly puffy one day this week, (I'm also on 17.5 mg of pred daily)
