Hi there, I have been reading these posts for a while but feel ready to join the chat and could do with some advice. Been diagnosed with RA and OA. They started me on methotrexate but after a few weeks side effects were so bad with breathing etc had to come off it. Rheumatology have gave me steroids which have been a reducing dose for the last three weeks but they are not doing anything so as of today I have to stop taking steroids until I see Rheumatology again on the 7th June as they think it's not inflammatory if the steroids are not working. Still got a lot of pain in feet and hands. Not sure what's going to happen next
