I was diagnosed at age 35 when I lost my first child as still birth. My initial was anti-cardio lipin antibody syndrome, protein C and S complications. I was told at time it would manifest as one of the auto-immune diseases. I had manageable pain, never took more than a Tylenol. I am a police trainer and on my feet for up to 12 hours. As I aged I would notice swollen feet mainly left. Everything always ck out fine. 2014 I had catastrophic injury to shoulder requiring 4 surgeries ending my career at 50. At this point my markers for RA was off charts and fibromyalgia kicked in for giggles. I have resisted medication bc I thought it was age, over weight from being sedentary, blah, blah. Pain unbearable daily - managed bc of shoulder with oxycodone. Want to come off that so decided to go RA drug methotrexate. 2 weeks in - pain considerably less but I feel horrid days 2-4 with nausea, energy, tired and like a truck hit me on day 6 until next dose. This will be my 3rd dose and I now have a burning sensation in my esophagus to my stomach, thinning hair, and what I think is quite possibly hives. Has anyone experienced this? Does it get better? Is there another better drug. I need HELP please.
