ive been diagnosed with RA a couple of weeks ago after suffering for the last 6 months and been back and forwards it is a relief now I know what it is. I’ve had 3 infusions and now on steroids for 6 weeks and also just picked up prescription to start on on methotrexate which I’m nervous about. I’m looking for positive comments on this medication if anyone can help much appreciate 😊

    Hi @becsx. You will be relieved now that you have a definite diagnosis. My sister has RA and is on Methotrexate. She finds that it keeps her RA under control. She goes for long walks and always seems to be going out somewhere. She spends a lot of time with her grandchildren and takes them out for the day 😊. You will feel better once you get used to it 🤞
