Now the reality seems to be setting in, I was diagnosed with RA and all of my bloodwork has confirmed. I started on Methotrexate and Folic Acid with reduced 10 Mg of Prednisone yesterday and overnight it seemed this morning I felt as though I was hit by a truck and more achy than I have felt for the past 2 months since identifying that I “may” have RA.
Is this normal to have such side affects from the chemo (tho lower dosages?)
Maybe I have been in denial, but if I questioned that I actually had RA, it seems clear now that I do – have others had the same type of response in the beginning?
Thank you for your support and a fantastic website!!
