Hi Jim - I just started Mtx last week for the second time. First time I only took it 4 weeks and my new GI says not long enough to know if it would help or not. Did you react like that on your first couple injections? What else have you tried med-wise?

Hey there,
 
I have also tried methotrexate.  I didnt notice too much change in the 2 months that I was on it.  I felt even more fatigued, low energy and low tolerance for any activity.  I aslso felt nauseas.  I know that some get relief, but we are all so unique, this one med isnt going to work for all of us.
 
I have also tried Plaquenil for the fatigue and joint pain.  This one worked for the first 4 years I used it, but lost its usefulness after this, so I got off of it.
 
What I am on now is Savella.  It doesnt touch any stomach issues, but helps with fatigue and gives me a higher pain tollerance.
 
best of luck in finding what works for you!

Yep. I was like that all the time on mtx.

It's a matter of weighing the potential benefits vs the side effects. Only you will be able to decide if they're worth it for you.
