Methotrexate And The Feeling Of Having A Lump In My Throat? Any Connection?

Methotrexate And The Feeling Of Having A Lump In My Throat? Any Connection?

The last few weeks I have noticed this when swallowing. No infection. Feel fine otherwise.
Recently my rheumy increased my folic acid to 5mg daily except meth day cuz I was getting the odd mouth sore. Hmmm?

Thanks... Good to know. How many mg of methotrexate are you taking weekly?
I"m on 20 mg meth. Have just been scripted 5mg of leucovorin per week taken the day after methotrexate day. Is a stronger version of Folic... Shall see... Lol

I take 8 2.5 mg tablets of Methotrexate weekly. I started with 6 and we upped it after deciding it wasn’t enough. After a goodnyear or so instarted adding Humira shots bi-monthly.

I started methotrexate about 4 months ago and has helped me a lot but my RA doc prescribes folic acid every day. I’m not one that does well with meds and I’ve had no Side effects at all
