I was recently diagnosed with RA which was triggered after I gave birth. Prior to that I was 100% healthy with no aches, pains or anything. I was nursing at the time of diagnosis and dealt with the pain for 8 months but I've sinced stopped nursing and today I took my first dose of meds. I am on Methotrexate, prednisone and folic acid. My doctor went over the side effects of the medicine with me but I am so so so very nervous about taking these medications. I know the prednisone is temporary but the other meds I will have to take all the time. I'm looking to hear from people on the meds who may or may not have experienced side effects. I'm just a scared parent who never had to take meds on a regular basis before... other than birth control and prenatals.
