I have RA & Sjogrens Syndrome
I went to my Rheumy July 13 this month and was ordered to stop all medications MTX and Enbrel due to have a very low white blood cell count. He said he needs to see if it's the medication effecting me (which is rare) & if it's not that I will need to see a hematologist. I've missed 2 shots now and going on 2 doses of the MTX (I take my shots on thurs and my pills on sundays). I'm going to get bloodwork done on the 27th and I have to call him 2 days after that to get the results and the next step I need to take.
I'm scared, he made it seems like it wasn't going to be the meds and that I might have another problem. I'm also having him test me for lupus so I will know soon if I have that.
Has anyone here dealt with low white blood cells that weren't a cause of your medication? & if so what were the results behind it?
Ps: i'm superrrr sore without any medications, this sucks so bad! :'(
