I was just diagnosed with RA my doctor put me on MTX 6 pills once a week. I take them on Friday night and I am good Sat. and Sun. but come Monday morning I wake up so tired. Tuesday morning I wake up feeling better. Does anyone else have this occur with this medication. Also I can't bend my little finger without it popping and when it pops it hurts like crazy. Does anyone know what this is. I never can get hold of my doctor to ask these questions.View Thread
My fog has gotten better the longer I take MTX. I have a problem now with what is called trigger finger. The little finger on my left hand is stuck straight if it is bend accidently to straighten it out it has to pop and that hurts like crazy. I don't have an appointment with my RA doctor until next month I just hope she can do something about it, I can't do anything with my left hand.View Thread
