I was wondering if anyone could help me.... My mom has RA, she was diagnosed several years ago. She is on Methotraxate (?) and Humeria. She is currently bleeding in the mouth and coughing severily. She will not go to a doctor or an ER. She still works though she is in a great deal of pain. I am beginning to become very nervous that this bleeding could be a side effect to one of those medications or even worse. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated!
