Hi Chrissy, I am sorry to hear of your predicament with all the drugs and their side effects.
I am always getting chest infections with methatrexate as I have bronchiectasis and am told from the specialist I cannot try "biologicals", after reading people's posts on here I am starting to think he is right.
I always wished I could try them and maybe have some marvellous results for my terrible arthritis.
Coming on this site has made me realise that there is no miracle cure, and I think we will have to put up with pain and deformity.
Everything seems to mess even more with the immune system...
Hope you feel better soon, and thanks for listening too. Em x
