hi colin went to rhummy clinic today said that my liver test was still high keeping an eye on it. said my other blood tests were just the same my esr has gone up to 70 and my crp has gone up to 6 but said that is good result. said the methotrexate is working does not want to put it up as I still have my sore throat and that is a side effect of it. gave my a steroid injection in my other had said it was pretty bad so that's where I am up to. thanks for your support once again lol

hi lol , I had same problem with liver results , ie: ALT which went up to 170 & at which time they took me off methotrexate , I ask to go back on it & this time they increased my folic acid to 6 days a week & since then had no problems with liver results + it helps stop he throat problems with methotrexate & helps to thicken our hair

been on 25mg MTX for years now with no side effects , talk to your rheumy nurse if you are worried
