Headache for a month

Might drop feed as I'm not feeling great.
I started methotrexate on 31/08/17 2 days later I got the headache and ended up in hospital they suspected a bleed to the brain and I had a CT scan and a lumber puncture, both were fine, there was talk of an MRI as it went to a suspected stroke or a 3 letter thing beginning with a T.
Anyway this headache has not gone it just differs in intensity and moves around.
I have been given pills for migraines and they take the edge off when it's really bad.
I just feel so tired all the time, they are saying it's due to the methotrexate but it's not a common side effect.
I'm seeing a doctor again tomorrow so any ideas?

Forgot to say when I was in hospital my heart rate was low.
