    I have been taking Methotrexate for about a 6 months for RA. Two weeks ago I took a Prolia shot for osteopenia and scheduled for another shot in 6 months. 4 hours after receiving the shot I started getting a rash on the underside of my right lower arm. The shot was given in my left arm. I called the doctor's office and left a message and I got a returned message that said the "doctor said it was extremely unlikely to be from the shot and put benadryl on it.'' The next day the rash was getting lumpy and going up my arm so I went to their after hours clinic and saw who a medical person and showed her the rash and she thought it looked like something bit me and she talked to the doctor who said take a picture of it and put benadryl on it. I told her nothing had bit me. For the next two days it getting worst, was on the back side of my lower leg and it looked like little clusters of blisters but no liquid drainage. I called the doctor's office, and they said the doctor said to take pictures of it which I did and then asked where to send them and was told me to keep them on my camera for reference. When the rash started on my other arm, I went to the emergency hospital and they gave me hydroxycz hcl tab 25mg. Two days later it was now on my back and I went to my GP doctor who has taken over my care and is in contact with 4 other RA doctors. I am now taking Prednisone 1o mg and as of right now I am rash free, but I can only take the prednisone for a few more days. I gave up on the doctor who gave me the shot in the first place.

    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
