Hi there, Since starting Methotrexate 8 weeks ago my C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) levels have been rising. They are now doubled and CRP is now 85. My general practitioner and rheumatologist have both phoned me about it. I am having another blood test tomorrow and then rheumatologist will decide whether or not I stay on it. I was quite surprised when I heard how high it was as joint pain has eased a lot in the last month. I have developed a cough that I can't get rid of and my fatigue has increased. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
