recently had pneumonia and just had follow up appointment with consultant yesterday. Bronchoscope done while in hospital did not show any bacteria consistent with pneumonia,so consultant has advised that I do not go back on methotrexate which I took alongside etanercept, as he believes that the methotrexate has caused the lung problems, could also be caused by a combination of the 2 meds together. Been on etanercept for about 10 years, it has changed my life where my Rheumatoid is concerned. Always had problems with methotrexate, so do not want to go back on that anyway, but concerned that it has caused lung problems. Anyone else had this ???
