Cue the Pomp and Circumstance!
I have graduated from monthly blood work and appointments with my Rheumatologist, to now one time every 3 months. This is a nice feeling … cutting the cord just a little bit.
We are also experimenting with reducing the Methotrexate back from 15 mgs weekly, to 10 mgs. This change does make me a little nervous. A couple months ago I learned this med is very necessary in keeping my symptoms at bay. I suppose we can always increase it again.
On the other hand it might be nice to lose some of these little side affect from the Metho. I have noticed some slight hair thinning (though I’m the only one who does), and my taste buds are definitely off the mark … red wine tastes just awful!
Take good care of yourselves.
