    Just started with my first dose of orencia 3 days ago, have been on methotrexate x 2 years now. I feel like I have been hit by a bus. Increased joint pain, continuous cough and runny nose, headache, fatigue. Does anyone know if this is normal? And do these symptoms fade once orencia is in your system longer?

    I have a friend taking methotrexate, folic acid, and Humira. She is taking drug test and keeps getting a positive. Someone told her it may be a "false" positive but she has to provide proof from a medical provider. Her rhematologist will not sign his name to it, being true or not. Can someone help us with any information possible please. Thank you

    I only started on a 5 mg dose of methotrexate 5 days ago. Due to increase to 10mg on Monday. My tooth and jaw started to ache within 24 hours of first dose. By day 4 I was taking all I was allowed of paracetamol. Tonight the pain is so bad I started to search the Internet and found this group. I am thinking I will not continue with the mtx. I have chronic sarcoidosis lung and skin. What a miserable situation. I'm 68 . Any thoughts will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Started methotrexate 3 months ago, recent CT scan showed trace ascites and positive fecal occult test. Could methotrexate for RA cause these symptoms?

    I am on 10 Methotrexate (25mg) per week, now for 1 year. My CRP blood count is still very high (32) in spite of all meds for rheumathoid arthritis.
    I have noticed recently that my heartbeat is irregular, always skipping a beat.
    Please tell me I am normal and not alone?!
    Thanks

    I am unendingly tormented by nasal drip and I take 8 methotrexate pills per week in one dose.
    I feel that it is the methotrexate.
