    Default Follow Up Rheumy today

    Good morning all! Going to see the witch today! This is my first appt since I started taking the Methotrexate. Can't wait to see what new and exciting things she has to say!

    Sorry if I'm being a bit sarcastic, just not feeling good this morning. I have a massive sinus headache that I fell asleep with and it's still hanging around. Normally my youngest son will rub my head & neck for me & make it go away, but he's w/his grandma right now!

    All righty then, off to go get ready! Hpe you all fhave a great day!

    Thank you ladies! She's not really a witch, I jsut don't like her that much. Still waiting on getting an appt w/Penn Hospital's Rheumatology dept - 2 mos waitingg list for a newbie appt!

    So, anyway, as expected, she's upping my dose of Methotrexate from 4 to 6 pills. I have to go have my bloodwork done and wait to make sure results are okay before increasing. Good news is she's going to let me cut down my Prednisone once I start the increase in Meth.

    Bad news, I stopped by to pick up my report from ultrasound I had last month. Dr's office said that I just had a "normal cyst" in my ovary. NOT!!!! It's another complex cyst. I had my one ovary removed a few years ago due to a benign tumor that started off as a complex cyst. So, needless to say, I'm not in a very good mood.
