:) Hi All,
I am Dillydream, diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in June 2009. I was given a low dose of Methotrexate and unfortunately had severe side effects :cry: and was taken off it. Now i am taking 10mg of Leflunomide and have tried to increase it to 20mg but a UTI caused problems and i had to reduce it again. I have agreed with my Consultant Rheumatologist that i will try again when i get the all clear from the repeat specimen i sent in.
I`m hoping that when my meds are sorted i will be able to cope with the pain/ stiffness and associated problems that PA causes.
I will be looking at this excellent site regularly i expect.
Best Wishes, :lol:

    Hi Dilly

    Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing you posting more. I hope you get the all clear soon regarding the UTI and can start the meds again and hopefully begin to feel much better.

    I will look out for you on the other zones. :)

    Look after yourself,
