Since I started Methotrexate (when we get to M, I will go into more depth on this drug) I have had reoccurring sores on the inner and outer skin of my ears. These sores cause my skin to flake off and then eventually they become so painful, sometimes radiating pain into my jaw, that I have to take a medication that just so happens to prevent Malaria! Isn’t that crazy?! When speaking to my rheumatologist about this again last week he does not think that my sores are caused from the Methotrexate but rather something entirely different. It is either highly coincidental that I started getting these sores shortly after starting my Methotrexate or it is a side effect that just isn’t as common. Either way it is just another driving force to get my immune system under control again, take back my life, and live again through functional medicine.
