So I have been on and off the phone with my dr. all day trying to figure out what I should do for my case of Lupus/ Rheumatoid arthritis. She said pretty much my only opportunity is to take Methotrexate. Im a bit leary about it because of the side effects. I guess it can cause hair loss, liver problems, and even lots of fatigue but in most cases the dr said most people dont have those, if you get checked regularly. Is anyone on methotrexate that can give me tips on it? What should I do or not do to make symptoms better or worse? Im so torn between either taking this stuff or dealing with the pain. today I woke up and couldnt lift my arms or open my hands so sometimes I say take the risk and just try the meds. Please give me any advice on it that you know. Thanks guys!
