my turn to rant tonight
I thought it was too good to be true when I finally got to restart my methotrexate on Wednesday. Five weeks I have missed through one infection after another ....... but on Wednesday I had my injection
and thought I was on the way to feeling better.
Last night started with stuffy sinuses, and today they were lots worse, and it became obvious to me that there may be an infection.
Infections always do this at Weekends don't they? My GP is away this week, so I got an appointment tonight with the other GP. (Daren't leave it until Monday as it was bound to take a grip and take longer to get over.) He is always very thorough, takes ages, and writes notes more like essays. The upshot is I have to have antibiotics, he did a blood test (and said how inconvenient it was that I needed one on a Friday evening :oops: :oops: not sure what I could do about that :roll: ) and then said that he thought I should stop the Leflunomide until I could get advice from the Rheumy nurse on Monday. Andtstop the MTX.
So ... no Lef, no MTX next week as on antibiotics, and another week feeling rough. :x :x :x :x
I know things could be a lot worse, but I really really wish arthur would give me a break right now.
