I've been lurking for around 6 months. I felt it was high time I joined in. I started 'hurting ' in Feb of this year and was very quickly referred to a rheumatology hospital. Have been diagnosed with probable psoriatic arthritis, although my tests not conclusive. Family history of psoriasis etc.
Been on Methotrexate since sept. 15 mg a week, arcoxia and folic acid.
Not feeling much better. Have been in constant pain for last 2 weeks and finally arranged a depo last week. Energy levels are brilliant but still got pain in fingers and toes. Gutted. last time I had depo was in May and had at least 12 weeks pain free.
Sorry, feels like I'm moaning. How long does metho take to work?
