Hi Everyone,

Recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis ( I see you all refer to it as RA ?). Just awaiting call from hospital pharmacist to discuss Methotrexate (if blood/chest ok). Just loitering at the moment until I can think of anything to ask and hopefully give any comments/advice as I travel on this journey.

Pete (55).

    Hi @peterdl

    welcome to the community, great to have you here. Yes our community members do like to shorten some things and you are right RA does mean Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have attached some information about Methotrexate for you and if you have any questions about this medication there are lots of people here who take it or have taken it in the past.

    Feel free to join in anywhere, you will be most welcome and let us know how you get on with the Methotrexare

    Best Wishes
