Rheumy- " against my better judgement".
I am so confused right now.
As I told you a week ago, my liver doctor, recommended that I start taking MTX agian.
A few minutes ago, the rheumy ( his nurse) called and said, " the doc will let you take the MTX again, but against his better judgement". What the heck is that supposed to mean? I did asked her that and she said that with my liver being in relatively bad shape he doesn't think that I should take MTX.
So I have asked her what kind of treatment he would suggest, because I have been without meds for several months now, she said that he didn't know what else I could take. " BUT I AM IN PAIN AND I NEED SOMETHING, I NEED HELP".
She said to have a blood test done today, take the MTX for two weeks and have another blood test then.
I am now starting on tuesday with a MTX shot, but only 0.4 mg, is that going to be enough? I used to take 0.15 mg and it helped me alot.
It is so frustrating, that two specialists can't agree on a treatment. What am I supposed to do? I am not the specialist.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
