Hi everyone.

I am on Methotrexate, six over two days for about eight years, I take two folic acid a week. I also have Osteoarthritis in knees and upper arms.

Last blood test doc wants to see me due to result.

Great to find such a forum as this one.

    Hello, I have psoriatic arthritis and take meth for that (plus humira) and OA (mostly from the waist down) for which I take pain relief. I have injected meth because the tablet form gave me meth rash which is apparently a bad thing. I'm in my ninth year of this regimen.

    Is it the GP who wants to see you about the bloods? My surgery has occasionally written to me about concerns but it's always turned out to be nothing that would worry the hospital; both nonsense and a nuisance! I hope you get on OK, please let us know what's what. DD

    Thank you for the welcome.

    Yes dd, it’s after a blood test the Dr asked to see me, they stress it’s not urgent maybe a low liver reading. They booked me in for a fortnight.

    Hello from me too :D

    I take methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine for me RA and have been called in a few times over the many years. With me it's always low iron levels and no big deal. Clearly, it's nothing urgent with you and that's always good :D Please let us know how you get on.
