Have they stated what the chest x-ray is for??...please let we know friday your results please. xxx
I think the chest x-ray was just one they need to do before I start my MTX. For a baseline I think.
Will do. x
I wouldn't really panic. I know having another diagnosis is scary, but if you think about it - you've always had the problem, and you yourself said and knew that it was a problem... so now you just have a name for it. Plus, you get to do something about it! YAYYY!!
Okay, sorry, I know, piling onto diseases you already have is scary enough. Just don't psyche yourself out too much, that's not going to help anything.
Sorry I can't be of more help - I'm not on MTX, and I've only been sick a pretty short time (9 mos), but I still understand, and we all understand, how difficult it can be with our SO's. They just don't understand, bless them. Not to mention it's frustrating to not be able to do the things you want to do with your spouse or loved one, because they're sick.
Oooh dont apologise, you make a good point and I agree with you. I already had the pain and the illness, its just now got another name to add to the list. And I will deal with it with strength like I do all my other issues. :D Plus, new meds which is definately an improvment!
(although will probably still cry every time I have a bad day! :))
It's just to see how your lungs are in general and chest before starting you on meds...like Elo said don't worry to much about that.
