I am taking enbrel weekly and 15mg of methotrexate weekly. I have only been on the methotrexate for a month and a half and feel great, finally. However, over the last 2-3 weeks I have started developing bruises on my left thigh. They are not massive, but also not small and go away on their own. I called my rheumatologist and there was a mess up with the message, he wanted to see me Friday but his nurse did not call back until Saturday. He is now out of town for the week so his nurse told me to go to urgent care so a dr there could order blood work if needed and get the rseults right away. Of course by that time the bruises were fading and the dr there told me I was probably bumping into tables or things without noticing. As if I wouldn't notice walking into the table 3 times in 2 weeks. He sent me home without doing any labs. It has been one day and I have another bruise on my leg. I know I did not bump it. Has anybody else had bruising like this? Should I be concerned?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
