I get chills alot. When I started taking my temps when I felt a chill coming on, I usually had (have) a fever. It may be low-grade (between 100 and 101), but it counts as a fever nonetheless. Mtx can lower your resistance to all kinds of little viruses; perhaps you've picked up a bug somewhere? If the chills don't go away, I would let your doctor know about it. I don't think mtx causes the chills, but you can catch all kinds of things on it, as it is an immunosuppressant drug.

Marion...I remember havingchills when I first started on the MTX and then they went away. I thought it maight have been because I had so much unflamation that i felt hot all the time and then the inflamation started decreasing and the fever went down as I responded to the MTX. hope you feel better.

Hi there,
 
I get them and I am often always really really cold, but my tempertaure is only around 97.1.  So I have a low body tempertaure.  Have you ever taken your temperature?  I don't take mtx, so I don't know about that, and I am not taking any meds for my arthritis right now.  When I flare, I am often chilled.

Have you gotten the chills lately? Is it cold where you are? Or rainy?
