I’ve recently been diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis and am due to meet my consultant this week to discuss my treatment. She has already stated I’ll be on methotrexate which worries me somewhat with it’s bad press and side effects. Does anyone have any advice on how to cope during your first few months taking this? Would injections be better than tablets?
I am currently seeing a private consultant but know I cannot do this long term. Have any of you been in this position whereby you’ll need your drugs on the NHS and when the best time is to see the GP. I’m not going to start this process with them until my medication is underway as I live in daily pain already.
Sorry for the long message but I’m sure you all know how daunting this is.
i look forward to any advice you can give me and wish you all a happy day,
