I was diagnosed last summer with RA. My Rheumatologist put me on Leflunomide as he said it was the only Rx with a generic and I don't have insurance. It helped my feet tremendously, but that's about it. Due to his high pricing overall for visits, I had to go elsewhere and found a wonderful new doctor who put my on Methotrexate (which wasn't that expensive, by the way). My question is, I've been on it almost a week, but my foot pain is coming back. Is this just my body getting used to a new drug and getting off of the old one? I can't even imagine dealing with that awful foot pain again. Can someone please give me their insight on this drug as far as the side effects you dealt with when you first got on it? Did you get any additional pain that went away? Much appreciated!! Thanks!
