An observation while waiting

Since contracting a case of shingles I was taken off methotrexate.  Since I had taken my weekly dosage the day before this seemed like a small precaution.  It’s been two weeks since that whole episode took place, and it would seem despite my curiosity of how, the methotrexate was actually helping despite the side effects.  This week the source of pain, centralizing in the middle to lower part of my back and radiating from there, seems to have returned to it’s original levels of pain (in short excruciating).  In general the pain was an after thought compared to my mobility and some internal issues that the pain was a secondary thought.  So, maybe what seemed an illogical treatment plan might be beneficial.  I guess I will know more when/if the infusions start next week.
