I went to see my rheum and she put me on methotrexate and prednisone and I was just wondering if anyone else is taking these kinds of meds or have taking them in the past and if there is anything I should know about them. I just started 2 days ago but I cant take the methotrexate yet because I am sick and she wants me to get better first. I feel alittle better already just with the prednisone and I wonder why that is. I have been hurting so bad these last 6 months its hard to go that long having R.A and not being treated for it. I up intil yesterday stoped doing everything I once enjoyed I just laid around in bed almost all day and I cant wait to enjoy life once again.
