I am not sure what to expect from this but from what my doc tells me this should be getting better. But honestly the first 2- 3 weeks of methotrexate and anti-inflamatories and pain meds and it felt as though was getting better but now seems not so much. Its hard to type my hands get so stiff and hurt. There is always something hurting. Does this ever get better and less meds? My mouth tastes like a dry pharmacy, YUK! LOL! I am trying very hard to be funny. When I am really sad and scared. Just not knowing what to expect next. I guess wake up in the morning and try again. Good Night Everyone!

    I do sometimes get night sweats. Currently I am going through a period where I am getting hot flashes and sweaty all of a sudden. I just went through a month of going to bed at midnight waking up at say 3am and then maybe a nap and then doing it all over again. Sometimes I don't get much sleep but if I can I do try to take naps cause my sleep pattern isn't always the greatest for some reason. What kinda meds are you on? Just wondering if there is something better out there than will work better than what I am currently on.
