Lump in the armpit. Pins and needles pain in the arm. Taking methrotrexate for psoriasis. Symptoms due to medication?

Im on methotrexate for phsorisis and have found a small lump under my left armpit this morning. Ive also been experiencing pins and needles in my fingers of the same arm. I think it has something to do with my medication . Should i continue using or see my doctor? I have an appointment to see my doc next tuesday but should i continue taking my medication until i see him?
