I have PSA and have been on methotrexate since the end of July slowly working up to 17.5mg.
The meds have had an obvious effect on my bloods (ESR & CRP being normal) but I still have issues with my knee, elbow & some fingers on my right hand. Pain levels are probably 3 on a 10 scale so I'm coping pretty well but my question is when is it appropriate to start the next level of treatment?
How bad must you be to qualify, i.e. is there specific criteria you have to meet?
I'm aware of the drip effect causing damage over time & would prefer to just turn the tap off if you get what I mean.
I'm seeing my rheumy nurse in a couple of weeks time so would like to discuss things then.
Many thanks for reading and any help you can give.
