Hi, New here, diagnosed with sero positive migratory RA in Feb this year. I was put on methotrexate tablets at the standard starting dose but suffered hellish headaches that lasted 3-5days and was taken off these and put on a low dose of leflunomide. Because I had a gastroplexy last year, the arthritis surfaced during the recovery period, I am limited to what I can take. My question is has anybody who has suffered the excessive headaches with methotrexate tablets changed to injections and the headaches eased, I know that when it works..it works as two of my brothers also have RA and it has been a wonder drug for them without causing them the headaches?
