So Jacob started coughing two weeks ago. I wasn't sure what was going on. I thought maybe he was doing it for attention. But by Saturday this week he was coughing non stop. I paged the rheumatologist on Saturday to see if he thought it could be from the methotrexate. He had heard the cough when we were in last Wednesday. He said to bring him inot the pediatrition to see if they could diagnose something. So I brought him in on Saturday. The doctor said his lungs were clear. She said he did have a little post nasal drip. So off we went. Last night he coughed until 1AM!! He has been coughing all day non stop!! I called the pediatrition back and Jacob's primary care doctor was in but he didn't see him on Saturday. I told them I really thought it was from the MTX. A Mom on the support board I spoke too said her son developed a cough from it. She said It was a big complaint from Adults on MTX too. So his primary care doc is going to discuss it with the doc that saw him on Saturday and call me back tomorrow. So I think I am in for another long night. I and he is, completely exhausted!
