Anyone On Methotrexate?

Anyone On Methotrexate?

My doctor recently started me on Methotrexate. Since then my hands and knuckles are killing me. I’ve never had such pain in my hands!
Anyone else feel worse after starting methotrexate?

I was on it for 2 years as it quit working. Made me hurt so my rhuemy said just use the hydroxychlorquine, we had to increase it to 300mg to help with the hives.

I'm feeling bad pain in my hands also, but I'm not on any medication for lupus because I can't get in to a rheumatologist for months. Sorry I hope we both find some relief and answers.
