Due to have MTX injection today but have a slight sore throat and have had the sniffles on and off for awhile. Unfortunaltely was around someone with a cold on the weekend. At my ultrasound in February the doctor asked if I had sniffles along with a list of other symptoms. Don't know if he was asking because I have Crohn's or because I am on MTX? I am scheduled for sugery next Monday so will not have that injection anyway. Do people have side effects from stopping? I do not want to get sick and not be able to have the surgery, waited too long. Suggestions?

This might be something you'll need to run by a professional. Usually, when I've been in this position, they want to know:
a. whether I've been running a temperature
b. whether I have a productive cough

Their answer may depend on your responses to these questions.

I hope your cold disappears quickly.
