I'm back - imuran question

I've been on my full Imuran dose, 200mg/day, for about five weeks. Very fatigued which lots of people experience. Then nausea and upper abdominal - which has passed. The lots of indigestion which isn't really a problem anymore. Now I'm getting headaches, jaw pain and sore throat. But the throat pain is more in the muscles of my neck. It hurts to swallow. Anyone else experienced this? This is all very weird.

Been on 150 mg a day for a few weeks now. I get pain swallowing food as well. Seems to go away though pretty quickly. Just those first few bites seem more difficult.
