Methotrexate, do your thing!

Today I saw my rheumatologist and we decided it is time to try MTX. I am taking 7 2.5 mg tablets a week. I hope and pray that this drug works. At the appointment, I also got a steroid injection for bursitis in my left hip (it hurt!!!) and a pneumonia vaccination.

The pain has been really, bad. As long as I don't have major side effects on mtx, things can only get better. Right?

I have been in the worst pain this week. I moved up my rheumy appt. next week from Thursday to Monday. I have to be strong, but I'm not sure I can go on like this. Please help. This truly sucks.
