Hi all! I'm now 6 weeks in with Methotrexate (up to 15mg now ) . I was told just prior to starting that I definately had RA. However, yesterday at my consultant appointment ( actually not set eyes on him yet, once saw a junior doc then other two times its been the nurse practitioner ) the nurse referred to my condition as 'inflammatory arthritis ' . When I queried this she said the consultant hadn't put 'a label' on it yet. She agreed that it was probable given my blood results but, as I don't seem to have any joint damage, she couldn't be sure!?!?
I'm now wondering why I'm on Methotrexate if there's a chance I don't have RA? I had a Kenalog injection before starting the meds , that made such a difference and almost alleviated all my symptoms so i'm not sure yet if the Methotrexate is working.
I left there yesterday totally confused, when I asked was there any other conditions possible with my blood results she just shrugged!
Anyone any suggestions? ? Thank you!
