I don’t tolerate the methotrexate pills well at all. They make me nauseous. So I was given the shots to draw up on my own once a week.
My last visit revealed my labs were almost normal!! Yippee!! So I began my own taper with the methotrexate injections. Yup. It’s true. I am a dare devil. I feel great and I have more energy. I’m not requiring 12 or 14 hours of sleep anymore. I’m actually doing well with 9.
I do not recommend this to anybody in a flare. I’m just reporting that after many months this feels right.
It’s been quite a few years since my last flare. I am estimating 7 or 8 years. What a sad day it was when I flared after so many years.
But upward and onward !!
Stay healthy my friends,
I acquired AOSD in 2008. I have suffered so terribly and have found ways to help me regain my life. This my personal journal of this mystery illness to diagnosis. I hope that I can help others with my experience and information.
