Methotrexate And Neck Pain

Methotrexate And Neck Pain

Hi All!

I started methotrexate about 6 weeks ago and am now having a really stiff neck (had a neck fusion done in 2009). I was just wondering if any one else has had any stiff neck issues/headaches with this medication. I inject once a week. Also, wow am I going to feel like crap the next day after the injection forever??

Arava

Arava

I've been having very dry skin lately, especially on my face even though I haven't changed any of my products, and I've even started using a humidifier like 24/7, and put CeraVe on which is really good for dry skin, and haven't noticed any change. It's not even the winter months where dryness might be more common. Can Arava cause dry skin?

A myRAteam Member said:

I also have dry skin but I think that is from the med's I take.
