I was diagnosed two yrs ago with RA.  Since then I have been on several different meds. Currently I am taking humira and mtx. A few weeks ago I began to get a very bad headache. I went to my primary care dr, who diagnosed a sinusitis infection and gave me zpac.  Barely able to walk, I eventually had to go to bed. Yesterday I got up, but I am very disorganized and I stumble a lot I am extremely tired.  I realize that I must go to the dr. but if anyone has any comments, I would appreciate them.

Well I'm not a doctor but I'll send you a hug. Mtx can cause the worse headaches, drink lots of water. When ever I get a headache its the first thing I do. I think these meds make us dehydrate faster than normal.
You obviously have something else going on, have you had bloods taken recently?
Sounds like your inner ear could be playing up or it could just be an old RA flare rearing its ugly head.
Goodluck with your doctor, hope you get some answers soon, golitho

I agree with golitho - drink lots of water, the day you take it especially.
I once read on this forum that MTX  gives you sinus trouble. I blame the MTX for being always stuffy nosed and scratchy eyed.
Im sorry you are having these troubles, hope it sorts out for you soon.
Take care.
