    Hey. I've been on the methotrexate injection for several weeks. I had to stop it for awhile due to some bad side effects but I've recently started back two weeks ago!! I have had some really great relief with the methotrexate, and I completely understand the scary part of beginning a new medication! I just tell myself that I won't know until I try!! Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't. It's one of the hardest things to do. I always get very anxious when it's time for my refills.... It's a fear that I have as nd I don't know how to explain it... Hope this helps ❤️❤️

    I took my second dose of 20mg /week last night and was feeling pretty “hungover “ sick this morning. I’m now wondering if the injection would make me less sick. Yeah not sure I can get used to eating a handful of 8 pills that make me feel so badly the next day. I used to be so aware of what I ate and worked out. I know I need to look at it differently but it’s hard
