I have just recently been diagnosed with RA and am on steroids and have just started Methotrexate. Not sure what to expect as think I am still in shock. I am only 36 and always associated RA with the older generation as my mother and her sisters all have it (I presume it is hereditary).
I am supposed to stay on the steroids until the MTX kicks in which will be about 4 weeks or so. Not sure what happens then or what to expect. Does the MTX work or when I come off the steroids will I experience the pain again as feel ok now?? Haven't really got a clue about the RA or the medication. Any info greatly received.
I work full-time and have a 18 month old son so trying to keep my chin up!
