Anti rheumatic drugs may can cause decreased appetite or nausea, vomiting, sore throat, etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Please consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
