My husband has ulcerative colitis and associated joint issues, he is on methatrexate which has been doing its job for last 3 years but he has been having a relapse lasting almost 6 months. He is under 2 different consultants, neither of which want to take responsibility. Hes 46years old and feels like a 90year old. he was told last week that methatrexate doesn't treat UC, however 3 years ago he was told it did. We are at the end of our tether and hes very low. Any advice gratefully received.
