I was recently prescribed methotrexate for my psoriatic arthritis. I was diagnosed with intracranial hypertension8 years ago, being over weight then that made me eligible for gastric bypass. Which I had in 2010, since then I have had multiple rare side effects that have resulted in five abdominal surgeries. Then a heart ablation, then diagnosed with a left bundle block, then stage B congestive heart failure. Plus, the gastric bypass causes vitamin deficiency, I am on my second iron infusion soon. Needless to say this has all caused a severe pain issue. I am afraid of starting the methotrexate, for many reasons I hear it causes pain, hair loss I can handle. But I'm afraid of the possible liver issues, and I feel I could possibly poison my family by taking the medication? Can anyone make me feel better about the medication? Or suggestions?
