    Hi,

    I started on methotrexate approx 2mths ago to help with my rheumatoid condition Ankylosing Spondylitis. I also take Sulphasalazine and pre gabalin and have done since diagnosis 2.5yrs ago.

    Since starting in the methotrexate I have started to suffer with some unpleasant symptoms around my vaginal area. Itching is quite severe and I have found what feels like a small lump too. Sex is now quite painful as I feel quite sensitive and feel the need to itch. I have never had any problems in this area before and have never had any STI's. I am in a long term relationship and have asked him to have a look- I didn't say anything for a week or so but thought I should as the itching was quite bad. He has noticed some redness and did feel the small lump at one point (although this seems to disappear at times) I have tried using a cream as I wondered if it was thrush (never had it before so wasn't sure) however it's been about 4 weeks now and still no change.

    Any thoughts? I hate the thought of going to the GP about this and having to get my bits out- it's very personal.

    Thanks

    Just been diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis after enduring the most excruciating debilitating pain I have ever known, so the elite family from Methotrexate and prednisolone and folate is a godsend. I have lived with insomnia most of my life as I have ADHD (now over 60!) and thought I had it under control - but this is something else again! I have only just started on the treatment so am hoping time may alleviate some of the worst, or am I dreaming? As we say in our vernacular.? I would love to hear some hopeful stories from others.
    Best regards to my fellow "Trexians"

    Have been on Methotrexate 8 years.
    Now having pain around my eye. It feels like I've been hit in the eye. Also eye swells nearly shut and the blood vessels are broken throughout my eye.
    This has occurred 5 times since May 10th.
    I've been to eye doctor 4 times and he says my eyes are fine.
    He has no idea what is causing it.
    He had my primary dr order cat scan. Thought it may be sinus.
    Cat scan came back fine. Nothing wrong.
    I see my RHEUMATOLIGIST on Monday. Wondering if it can be an effect of long term on Methotrexate.
    Has anyone had this problem?
    Thanks.

    Hi. I just found this group. I recently started MTX for RA and have been on prednisone for years and am getting off of it PERIOD. I am finally at last down to 10 mg of prednisone and have read that dropping more is going to be rough.
    So I read about curcumin and I believe it is just what I need. So I am starting Sandhu's Tumeric 500 mg capsules today.
    Thanks for listening.
