Hey guys, I got diagnosed with RA while on deployment about 4 months ago my question is I am on MTX injections, I heard this medication weakens your immune system? Elwhat exactly does this mean? The reason I ask is because I'm in the army and we go to the field and sleep on the rain, sleep in the cold, sleep on the heat etc, does my medication make other easier for me to get sick or infections by sleeping in woods etc??? Should I bring this up to my doctor stating that I cannot go to the field and sleep in certain conditions that could cause me to get sick since my immune system won't be as strong as everyone elses??? Thank you
