First time posting in any ra forum but need some advice while I wait for rheum nurse to phone back. I was diagnosed with jia about 17 years ago (pretty much all my joints Appart from my hips and shoulders). By my mid 20s I had no flares or even morning stiffness and genuinely believed I had 'grown out of it' as I was told that could happen and I was no longer on any medication. Well after having my daughter last year it came back with a vengeance and after being in denial for a long time I've finally gone back on methotrexate. I had my first injection on Friday (starting on 15mg). I felt pretty terrible all day Friday and Saturday I started with a horrible dry cough. So violent at times I'm actually sick. Has anyone else experienced this with methotrexate or is it just a coincidence it started a day after my first shot? Thank you in advance for any replies ?
