Another from the department of "WHAT NOW?"
Got a call from the rheumatologist's
office Friday and found out that now my liver enzymes are elevated thanks
to the methotrexate. This is the first time I've ever had anything
amiss with my liver, and it isn't sky high, so I will have it checked
again in a month. But this is definitely a trend I don't want to
Asked the doc if taking milk thistle for my liver would be
worthwhile, and she was less than enthusiastic. Between the vision loss
from Plaquenil, a nasty eye infection (welts on my eyelids and HORRIBLE
itching of the eyes) thanks to an allergic reaction, the liver enzymes,
side effects of methotrexate and trying to get over my phobia of needles
to endure the weekly injections, all since February 12, I am feeling
dejected, which is not typical of me.
