Hi, as a newcomer to the forum, briefly, have recently been diagnosed with RA, have been prescribed with Methotrexate and Folic acid to be taken weekly. The dose is to be increased weekly. Have also been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is causing pain to my hands and numbness and no grip. I have read of some people having taken an anti inflammatory also but according to the dispensary chemist I should not take ibofrofen with methotrexate. My question is, will the methotrexate relieve the CTS ? Any advice would be useful, thank you.
