Wishing you well on the next attempt there with MTX debbie-b! btw, that "frequent urinating" when on the steroids is the blood sugars going way up on you, which your body compensates for by trying to eliminate it (the high sugars) from you through the urine. For me, the elevated blood sugar is the worst part of higher-dose steroid use. You might have them do an A1C test on you next time you're in the doc's office, just in case.
