That's exactly what the rheumy said. No two are prescribed together.

Methotrexate

Methotrexate

Hi everyone. The doctor has just prescribed this to me. It's my sister in laws wedding coming up and I'm trying to decide if I should wait the 3 weeks before starting it or not. What side effects have you had from it?

Info Please

Info Please

I'm 73 yo female healthy all of my life until my legs started aching and back pain became regular. I was recently dx'ed with SA. I have just started Humira. Also take methotrexate and prefnisone. At the the same time have come to need hip replacement. Having these 2 together, it's hard to separate which pain is from which ailment. My muscles are constantly aching, especially my legs. Getting into bed is a nightmare. I'm walking with a cane or in a wheelchair. I feel devastated, crying a lot and… read more

Is Anyone Hla Negative And Still Diagnosed As?

Is Anyone Hla Negative And Still Diagnosed As?

My doc tried to get me in a drug trial but the mri didn’t show inflammation and hla b27 was negative so I don’t qualify. Now I’m stressed that this info will make him rethink my diagnosis. I was happy(sort of) to finally having an answer to why I’m in so much pain all the time and get on track to feeling better(sort of). His diagnosis was based on deteriorating of the si joints caught on an X-ray.

Are Constant Back/neck Muscle Spasms Common With Nr-axSpA?

Are Constant Back/neck Muscle Spasms Common With Nr-axSpA?

My doctor believes I have nr-axSpA based on my history of 30+ years of back/neck pain, severe thoracic/pelvic pain when lying down, and doing just fine during the day. I also have a family history of Ankylosis spondylitis and I test positive for the gene.

However, what has driven me over the last 30 years to seek medical help, is constant muscle spasms in my neck and entire back. This has severely impacted my range of motion. Nerve conduction studies confirm that the muscles along my entire… read more

Thanks Cathy. I’ve been on tizanidine since July 2020. It has helped with ROM and sleep but the muscle spasms continue 24/7.

Thanks for the information about Methotrexate, I wasn’t aware of the… read more
