I have psoriatic arthritis and on 15mg methotrexate a week (per last 4 years) - just got notice today that I'm high risk and should follow shielding advice. I wasn't expecting that as didn't see arthritis on any coronavirus risk list, though it gets tucked away under the "other medication" bit.
So aside from frustration that I seem to have got the advice late compared to others, so been operating at risk for last few weeks, I wanted to ask how quickly others found they got added to relevant lists with superrmarkets etc so you can use online shopping (currently impossible in my area)?
Secondly, are hospitals still running blood tests for those on methrotrexate or are these on hold while hospitals so busy? Thanks in advance
