Pneumonia and RA flare up
Hi .... Wonder if this has affected anyone else . I have had pnuemonia this winter and keep being sent for X-rays to see if it has cleared. Each time I have a little less pneumonia but not totally clear . My RA had been more or less behaving itself for the last couple of years and my RA dr took me off my methotexate in September but then came the pneumonia and it has caused a big flare up of the arthritis. I can't get back on the methotrexate or steroids because of the pneumonia and my rheumatologist is so busy you sometimes can't see her for months . I 've also been told I have nodules on a goitre last week so that has been thrown in to the mix too . Anyone else had this problem or similar experience ? I'm taking Celebrex and solpadol but its not really helping. Thanks everyone .
