    Hello, it's nice to meet you but I am sorry you have had to find us. I have psoriatic and osteoarthritis plus fibromyalgia and am in the twenty second year of this malarkey. It's not fun, is it?

    I have had haywire bloods from time to time but nothing like your situation. Things went suddenly and quite badly wrong back in 2006 when I was taking enbrel but stopping all my meds for three months sorted that. Has your rheumatologist suggested that you stop the meth? I am not a doc but it sounds as though you'd body is not tolerating something or maybe there is some drug interaction happening. What else do you take? DD

    I'm very lucky in that I've not had this happen to me but I know, from reading on here, that it is by no means unusual. I'm sorry I can't offer any help. It does sound as if your rheumatology team have it in hand but that will be no consolation while everything is so topsy turvy. I do hope it settles soon.
