Re: Anyone on methotrexate?
Thank you, Jenny!
I actually see a rheumie in Boston and she has been the only doctor not to rush into a diagnosis. She is not sure if my Sjogrens is primary or secondary because she thinks that there is something else going on. However, only time will tell. The joint pain was so debilitating that it was a challenge to work, but I can't quit.
I had another rheumie diagnose me with Lupus beforehand, so I'm not sure what this other ambiguous issue may be but know that the methotrexate has made a huge difference. I'm in my late thirties now, so I pretty much feel that I'm at the beginning of this journey. However, by treating it now, I'm hoping to slow the progression of whatever it may be if it is more than just Sjogrens. I also have Fibromyalgia so I have gotten used to the day to day issues.
I love the Restasis too! I also put a gel drop into my eyes several times a day and have a punctal plug in my left eye. Hoping to get a plug in the right eye when I see my eye doctor in a couple of months. I think it does make a difference.
Thank you for your input. It really does help to know others do well with additional DMARDS and biologics. Take care!
