i was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 18 I’m 25 now and I’ve had a huge flare up causing significant impact on my lifestyle. I’ve been taking hydroxychloroquine since January and I’m not on my 7th week of methotrexate tablets. I’m also taking naproxen 1000mg per day and amitriptyline nightly.
the side effects are absolute horrendous from diahorrea and bad nausea to most recently quite bad episode of dizziness, almost like I’ve just come off the waltzer at the fair. The dizziness is that bad that it always makes me vomit. I’m having these episode probably once and sometimes twice a day. I manage them by drinking fluids and being in a cool room. Yesterday was the worst dizzy spell and I’m just wondered how people are coping with their side effects and if the option of methotrexate injunctions actually do have less side effects
someone help! The medication is amazing for my joints And I have been able to go back to the gym and run and swim which is something I haven’t been able to do for just over a year but I just need some advice
