Subject: What meds next?

Hello everyone.
I have Psoriatic Arthritis & Psoriasis, been on methotrexate for 24 months 20mg it has really improved the pain in my elbow but not in my ankle in fact it is getting worse and now getting pain in my heel too the only good thing I find dose help but I know cant have all the time is the steroid injections.
Just wondered what you all thought is the best treatment I am going to Rheumatology on Monday so any suggestions I would really appreciate

I would have thought they will try you on some sulfasalazine or Leflenomide (spelling!) - I don't think they can justify the anti-tnf to the purse holders until they have tried other cocktails.......? I'm also on hydroxychloroquine - all of these I have taken while on mxt 20mg.......

I hope they find the right mix for you S-J
