Hi JayBespoke and welcome to HW and the RA forum
I have been on oral MTX for 6 years now and havent really experienced what you are describing.
Sometimes its hard to say whether its the disease causing the pain or the meds we take for it as who knows what the meds are capable of doing side effect wise.
Sorry Im not much help, just wanted to welcome you on board.
