Weird Side Effect

January 25, 2009 at 10:48 am Leave a comment

I’ve discovered a side effect to the methotrexate. I didn’t really think it was related to the drug last week because it wasn’t one of the listed ones, so I thought maybe it was just a coincidence that it happened after taking the drug last Saturday.


The side effect: From Sunday to about Thursday last week a bunch of my muscles were sore like I had been working out (weight lifting sore) and I hadn’t been working out. I thought maybe I had slept wrong.


Well, it ended up it did have to do with my sleeping.


I took the methotrexate yesterday (Saturday evening). I had some mild nausea. No big deal. Then I woke up this morning…with my entire left arm sticking out of the neck hole of my shirt. Yes, the neck hole. I know! Weird! I’m normally a heavy sleeper and have never done anything like this before. It gave me the giggles this morning wondering what I must have looked like last night and the type of maneuvering I must have had to do to get my arm out of the neck hole. Did I sit up and do it? Did I do it while lying down? Did I get out of bed and do it?


If I slept anything like this last Saturday night, no wonder my muscles were sore. I was working out in my sleep.


Has anyone else had this side effect?
