Methotrexate side effects

I have PA and fibro and take Methotrexate by injection. I've been on Methotrexate for many years and have kept lowering the dose due to awful side effects. How dangerous would it be to stop it all together? As I'm so sick of the side effects. Thank you (Daisy)

Clicky joints

I've always had very clicky joints and at times (particularly my ankles) make very loud cracks - is there a chance I could get arthritis? Thanks (Moira)

Managing Pain

After suffering with pain in my knees for a few years, I was sent for an x-ray and finally diagnosed with osteoarthritis. What can I do to help manage the pain? People say that walking can help, but I find walking to cause me a lot of pain so I'm not convinced that walking will help me! I must admit...

Methotrexate

I was diagnosed with RA just over 6 months ago and was prescribed methotrexate. A month or so after, I noticed that I had a rash and some red bumps on my chest, and have continued to have rashes quite regularly. I have stopped eating certain foods and changed some of my usual products such as shampo...

Exercise/home remedies

Hi, I have recently been told that I have osteoarthritis in both of my knees (I've been in pain for a while so it's quite a relief to have a diagnosis now if I'm honest). I know that I am slightly overweight, and I am determined to lose a few pounds (especially after christmas!) as I think this will...

I ensure I don’t drink caffeine past 2pm and in the evening avoid alcohol and indeed any fluids after 7pm. Waking up I often ...

Prostate Cancer

I have intermediate prostate cancer (7 Gleeson). I know from the time my biopsies were done that my prostate size is 60mm x 50mm. I have had pain in my hands every time I urinate for about 4 years and now know why my urethra is being crushed and that reduces the flow, no idea why it hurts my hands. ...

Frequency of physical examinations

Three years ago I got diagnosed with having a slightly enlarged prostate because I was getting up numerous times in the night needing the loo. I am taking 400mg Tamsulosin daily.
My question is how often should I be physically examined by the doctor for this condition?
Thank you, Nigel
