    My RA is mild. The methotrexate caused my cholesterol to rise. The Lipitor caused my blood sugar to rise. The rheumatologist denied that the Methotrexate did this but I found research by peer reviewed journals that reported this finding.

  • I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis...

    I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I was first prescribed sulfasalazine but didn't improve on it after 7 weeks. My doc recently switched me to methotrexate and folic acid. She also gave me meloxicam and predisone to take as needed. I have not taken these last two.

    I've literally been on the methotrexate (4 pills taken one day a week) for 2 weeks. I'm not sure when tot expect it to start showing signs of working. Also, my face started breaking out in the next couple of days after taking the 2nd dose of methotrexate. I am feeling frustrated, and don't want to stop but also don't want to deal with the breakouts. Does anyone have any similar reactions to the medication?

    Thanks you very much.

    I am 82 years old and have been in good health. I recently have become dizzy. I have gone to a cardiologist, neurologist, internist, eye ear nose and throat specialist and no one can find any reason for the dizziness. I have been taking folic acid for the last 20 years could this be the culprit?

  • Several years ago in 2013 I was"diagnosed" with RA...

    Several years ago in 2013 I was"diagnosed" with RA. I went through every medication including, humira, embral, to now IV fusions of remicade which has been almost a year. I am not feeling any better and body aches and joint pains getting worse. I started researching my symptoms and lyme kept coming up. 9 months in and many drs telling me i have nothing its my RA and that I am pretty much crazy, I made an appt. with an infectious disease dr whom also said my symptoms are RA nothing else related to lyme or ticks. Well today I found out after waiting 3 weeks for the results i tested negative for Lyme but positive for "Ehrlichiosis" now i am wondering if all this time of being untreated caused my body to fall apart. I am only 42 yrs old I have a 4 yr old i have no energy to play with or strength to open a jar of apple sauce. Can this positive "Ehrlichiosis" result be the cause of my ailments? And have gone untreated for ever how long cause so many masking problems? I have had so many abnormal blood tests for years. I start antibiotic today for 14 days is that gonna be enough? Is that going too heal me altogether? This is a bittersweet moment for me. Do I even really have Iron deficiency anemia or did this bacteria cause me to have problems?
