hi, i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritus two years ago and was prescribed MTX 18 months ago after trying steroids and naproxen, iv had loads of side effects including depression, hair thinning and mouth ulcers, i was switched from mtx pills 20 mg to methaject 20mg three months ago after discussions with specialist about not feeling any better and struggling to walk. Three weeks ago i had a nuclear dynamic bone scan which has revealed significant further deteriation of joints, im currently waiting to hear off speciaist has hes been on holidays but my gp lightly discussed results with me.
SO i guess methatrexate is not working for me, I feel hopeless and dont feel as if im getting anywhere with doctors, i am 41.
Does anyone else feel the same? or have any advice thanks linda
