so I was diagnosed with RA a few years back now and I still try and deny it and I never mention it to anyone at all.
I've been on mtx injections for over a year now ( was on tablets before that) and naproxen and have had steroid injections. I'm in pain most days to the point I can't lift a glass because of hand,wrist and elbow pain. Ive had pain in other areas in the past.
In the last few days I've had different sorts of pain.... tingling feet at night and pain in the back of my knees and thighs which feel like I've done excessive excercise (which I haven't). kind of like I've stretched muscles.
So what I 'm asking in a long winded sort of way is do you think I should contact my rheumi and say I don't think the mtx is working and I'd like to try something different. Or do you think I have something else on top of the RA?
Many thanks if you are able to help.
