Cramping while on weekly methotrexate
I am injecting methotrexate every week and on my second moth of treatment . The first month I had the worst menstrual crams I've ever had . So severe it woke me up from a dead sleep. Otc pain killers won't dull the pain or cramping a tall. Now moth 2 and going through it all over again . Just wondering if this is typical
can I take methotrexate along with arithromycin?? or should I dis-continue methotrexate while taking it?
Methotrexate and Diverticulitis
I have been on Methotrexate for about 6 months because of RA. I had upper and lower endoscopies prior to taking meds. No signs of Diverticulitis. As a matter of fact, I was not even sure what that disease was at that time. However, I was soon educated. I have had two severe bouts of Diverticulitis about 6 weeks apart. I was treated with Cipro. I just had foot surgery when the second bout occurred. On the up side, I was so sick from the Diverticulitis that I forgot my foot pain. I have asked my doctor to take me off methotrexate because I would rather deal with the joint pain than Diverticulitis.
I have been taking MTX for the past 4 years for Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritus and whilst taking it orally it made me feel extremely sick. I have changed now to injecting the MTX and find that there is now no sick feeling. However I have been suffering with warts on all different parts of my body.
Methotrexate really working for me
I went for my monthly blood tests 2 days ago and I would like to post the result for the benefit of other users of methotrexate. As per the results my liver and kidney are doing fine and the C-Reactive Protein ( a measure of inflammation) went down from 34 to 10 (less than 5 being normal) after 4 weekly doses of methotrexate of 20mg per week. I am feeling much better these days and using Celebrex 200mg only twice a week. My White blood cell count however still in the high normal range. I will post the result of my blood tests next month again.
