Hi all you lovely people. With big interest i read a lot of your posts and it would be a great help to understand and compare your experience and side effects with my own, if you inform how big/small dose og Mtx you are on.
I am diagnosed with RA and have been on 20 mg MTX week,y for about 6 months. I had at least one whole day with nausea and sometimes headacke. I also started to get sore gums and was bleeding when brushing my teeth. I went down to 15 mg MTX weekly, but still have a day feeling bad - almost like having a horribly hangover. I have lost a lot of weight (about 5 kilos). I still struggle with my gums. My rheumatologist told me to take more Folic acid, and i now take 5 mg the daybefore and after injections of MTX and one in between. Does anyone on the same dose have problems with nausea and sore gums?
I am from Denmark and i apologize that my english is not perfect.
