Has anyone experienced major itching on the bottom of your feet. Started after mtx. Dont know if it may have to do with mtx or ra.
It's possible that it's a side effect of the methotrexate. I wrote a post last year about medication side effects, which can include dryness everywhere - in my experience, a common side effect of some of the medications. I'd suggest you contact your rheumatologist to discuss this, just to be sure.
I have RA and have had very itchy feet for about two years now. Haven't used mtx in about 5 years. Started Remicade two months ago. I take Etodolac and Tramadol regularly, which is where my suspiscion lies. All pain killers, even mild ones like Tramadol, dry me out, despite 1/2 gallon water/day.
Hello, I just posted the question about itchy scalp. It's crazy! I itch and itch and want to gouge my scalp in. I thought I had a bad case of dandruff, but there isn't a flake on my scalp! Plus my face gets itchy and I don't have any rash that I can see, no hives or bumps. I almost feel like it's in my head. I just started my Mtx 2 wks ago and this started about a week ago, so not sure if it's related or not.
If you discover what the problem is or a cure, please post it.
Thanks and Good Luck!
I don't know what mtx is or ra is , but right now the ball of my foot is itching between the big toe and the first toe and it's driving me nuts. any solution to stop it,
