So my dr. prescribed sulfasalazine and I did not do well at all... Craziest thing, my lungs hurt sooo bad! I have never experienced anything like it before. I have had pneumonia twice and that was nothing compared to this pain. I felt every inch of my lungs, from top to bottom front to back, yet I had no shortness of breath or coughing, just pain. Not to mention what it did to my stomach.
So I got a new prescription for metathrexate. I am worried about taking it now right before the holidays. I don't want to deal with a bunch of side affects, and from what I have heard it takes a while to kick in so I wouldnt even feel the benefits. It's hard enough being a single mother who works full time. I don't want to be knocked down completely and not be able to give my girls the holiday they deserve.
