Sep 17, 2012 · I have just been diagnosed with RA & my Dr has prescribed Methotrexate & Prednisone. I am worried about the side affects, just wondering if the benefits outway the risks in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I took prednizone last yr( for what I thot was) Mixed connective tissue,
arthritis and fibro. My hair became very,very thin and
I had bruises all over my body. When I stopped the pred.
in about three months these side effects went away.
As it turned out it was not a flare up of the three above issues
but that I had contacted toxo plasmosis in my eye.
I would never go on prednizone again. For the toxo my eye
dr would not put me on methotrexate as he said it would
practically destroy my bones. I have read that you do need to
take folic acid w/it tho.

Sep 14, 2012 · Toxo Plasmosis

I have had this parasidic organism (cellular form) in my eye for over a year
now. I have had 12 injections in the eye so far. I have lost all of my central
vision. Has anyone else gone thru this.
The Toxo just kps activating again and again.
In addition to the injection I am also on many eye drops for hi pressure and
inflammation.
