    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

    Wanting to go on Truvada for a short period of time, maybe 3 months. But concerned because I'm on Methotrexate (25mg) once a week (Folic acid all other days) for a condition of inflammatory arthritis. I'm in my 60's.

    I feel so embarrassed with the amount of hot sweats that I get. Sometimes worse than others. I get them a lot at work, especially on my injection day for methotrexate. I can get so panicky too. It doesn't help having to deal with the public. Will it ease over time?
