Hi glad your having a good day. I know what you mean, i get really frustrated with not being able to do normal things like house work or struggling to do them. I have had that same cocktail of drugs but the methotrexate did not agree with me and so now i am waiting to be assessed for TNF? I am not looking forward to injecting myself but if it makes me better then i am all for it!Have you been on the methotrexate for long? Do you think the drugs your on help you?
