News from the Doctor

So today was the follow up appointment for the Rheumatologist. My xrays and blood work came back. I found out that all of the joints in my hand and wrists are swollen. My lovely immune system is attacking my joints. We are starting me on medicine. I will me starting methotrexate this weekend. I have to take one 10 mg dose a week. Every two week I get a blood test. If the tests are OK, they want to slowly raise my dosage to 20mg. I will also have an phone call every two weeks with the doctor, as well as an appointment once a month. My doctor is great. Wish me luck.
