Blister or soar in mouth from Methotraxate?

Blister or soar in mouth from Methotraxate?

I noticed several times that I at times get what feels like a blister way back on my gum. I forgot to mention it to my RA doc at the last visit.

Exhaustion an issue for you?

Complete exhaustion is a problem that most have but doctors seem to brush off as a non issue.
There are times when out of nowhere I can't keep my eyes open and basically collapse.

Same here. I have fibromyalgia as well. I used to be so high energy and since 2003 I’m so tired. It’s so embarrassing. Makes me feel so useless.
