    My heart races and beats loudly when I am in bed after methotrexate injection. Would it help to do this earlier in the day and not before bedtime.

    Hi I have Bronchiectasis and Rheumatoid Arthritus,I was diagnosed 18 months ago,although I had been suffering for a long time before.
    I am taking Methotexate foic acid for R.A, And inhalers for the chest.
    Having both these deseases at the same time the prognosis are frighting about 4-5 years. are there others that have the same and are still living longer than 5 years
    ,I am luckier than most as now I have very little discomfort no cough unless I get a cold followed by a chest infection. I eat healthy food, swim and go to the gym, which I was lucky to be put on a programme by my RA consultate. I take Turmeric capsules, vitamin d3 ,Omega oil capsules.
    Would love to hear from others.

    Hi Everyone,
    I joined this group in hopes of finding out why my cholesterol is steadily increasing. I have been taking 15mg of methotrexate for almost five years and my overall has risen from 165 to now at 212 and my LDL is 140; Conversely, my HDL (Good Chol) has gone from 39 to 47. I have been exercising and watching what I eat, so why is one showing so much improvement and the other much worse? Thanks for any input, Ann

    So much conflicting information about links between methotrexate and curcumin not sure whether to keep taking it. Have weekly injections of methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis and want to take curcurmin which I believe is antidote to losing brain function.

    My ESR (inflamation rate) was 59 when initially diagnosed for RA. Today it is around 6 or 7 and this is after 10 years.

    Hello, I am a 19 year old female who has been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 6 - I know, very uncommon to hear. I have been taking methotrexate for about 12 years now and I have always had signs of OCD throughout the years but it has become increasingly troublesome for me and has gotten in the way of my daily life and happiness. I do see a therapist but I don't feel as though I get the same support as I do on forums from others who experience similar issues as mine. I'm seeking a safe place to be able to talk to others who can relate.
