I wonder if you can share some advice please?
I have PsA and OA, and began methotrexate in January this year. It made a huge difference, and at my last rheumy appointment he raised it from 15mg/day to 20 day, incrementally - as I still have inflammation in my hands and knees particularly.
My question is - does it take as long for a raise in dose to act as it does for it to work initially? I still have burning in my hands, fingers and knees, and am wondering how long to leave it before going back and saying this?
I went to my GP but he didn't really understand and just offered painkillers - what I really want to know, I guess, is how well can I expect to be? and should I be worried about have some signs of inflammation still?
Cannot decide whether to speak to rheumy nurse just now - to be honest she's been less than helpful in the past and is a faff to get hold of.
