I have had trouble swallowing since December 2011. I found that I have vocal cord motion disorder and gastroporesis but my mouth feels like its burning, I get sores on my tongue if I eat something sugary, I have lines on the insides of my cheeks. I feel as though my palate and back of it is stiff and can't get a a good swallow and not enough saliva, although an oral surgeon said that my saliva was producing enough. I think that it just isn't working correctly for some reason. I feel that I get alot of inflammation and feel there is pressure in my head and temples. I have had several blood tests and no diseases. The only thing that came up a little high, but dr's don't seem to worry, is my thyroid stimulating hormone and epstein barr titers for a past infection. I have been given systemic antifungal meds for 2 weeks in February and it seemed to help, although dr's are telling me it was a placebo effect. I do feel like my mouth is not pushing the food back when it get's to the palate stage, which makes me believe that there is an infection in my palate or something just not working right. What tests do you think I need? I've had manometry testing, barium swallow (which I think I need to have done again), gastric emptying scan which found the gastropresis, 2 endoscopy, and larynscopy where they found some bumps in the nasal passage, that looked like allergies. In all my studies they found mid inflammation and different points in time. Is this something viral that just needs to take it's course? I get really anxious when I cannot eat correctly. I feel like first thing in the morning I can somewhat swalllow but it just gets tougher and tougher, so I don't know if it is inflammation, or an infection with inflammation. The dr did KOH's (swabs) of my mouth and did not come back with signs of yeast or fungus after about a week.

Hi I was prescribed methotrexate 2.5mg to take 6 once a week for treating a skin condition. I accidentaly read the description of dosage incorrectly and thought it said take 6 -2.5mg a DAY! I've discovered this about 5 days into taking the medication. This past Monday I took two 2.5mg tablets, Tuesday I took 6 2.5mg tablets, Wed I took 4 2.5mg tablets , Thurs I took 4-2.5 mg tablets, Fri I took 4 2.5mg and today (Sat) only took 2 2.5mg .. Then I discovered my error. I've been worried to death and have been reading online if this is an overdose and what I should do.. Oh with each of these days I did take 1mg of folic acid each day as prescribed my my doctor.. I took 3 more mg of folic acid today when realized my error.. Please help

Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Even 30 mg/ day of methotrexate can be give in few selected cases in various diseases.
You have taken an optimum dose of 6 tablets (2.5 mg) in a day means 15 mg.

No doubt this is an immunosuppresant drug but not as harmful as you are thinking.
I am...
