Been put on Amoxicillin, so can't take methotrexate at moment
After i had my 6th week of 15 mg of methotrexate tablets, I got quite a few water blisters on both soles of my feet, a slight cough, mouth sores, back of neck hurt when looking up, jaw hinge hurts when opening mouth, a few lymph nodes came up on the right side of my clavicle bone. neck hurts when looking in the opposite direction,
I had an appointment with my rheumatologist nurse and showed her, she said i had to see my gp as she did not know what was happening.
My gp thinks i have a skin infection where the nodes are up, they are painful when i am lying down, or if my jacket brushes them.
He gave me Amoxicillin 500mg tablets and said they should work in a few days, if not i need to go back to gp. I started them on Tuesday but only got 5 days worth of Amoxicillin, the nodes are still swollen and my right knee is starting to swell up again and i only missed one week of methotrexate because of the symptoms above.
Tomorrow i should take methotrexate again but can't yet, also my other knee seems to be getting effected by RA now.
