Methotrexate and Motion Sickness

Happy New Year everyone! I have a weird question. I am on methotrexate orally for both my RA and crohns. I take 25mg a week and have been on it for at least 2 years. I have noticed in the past year that my motion sickness has gotten worse. I know this sounds weird but since the med can make you nauseous, I wondered if it could make me more prone to nausea than I used to be when in motion. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this. Thanks!


In terms of dealing with nausea from Methotrexate "There is a report that acupressure devices used to reduce motion sickness may help." http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/466325

There could be a connection. Have you tried the motion sickness wrist bands? They seem silly but my cousin was unable to go anywhere till he wore them.
