Does Anyone Experience Random Sharp Joint Pain That Doesn't Feel For Certain To Be Like The Other Stiff And Painful Joints?

Does Anyone Experience Random Sharp Joint Pain That Doesn't Feel For Certain To Be Like The Other Stiff And Painful Joints?

I have been having unexplained sharp pain in the shoulder joints, but no simultaneously. It pops up on one side and resolves, then suddenly it comes in the other shoulder or even my left hand. Can't decide if it is the RA or some other weird problem.

Have a blood test and ex ray of the shoulders. Good luck. Try some anti inflammation meds. I take Cataflam.

RA pain isn't always the same. Sometimes it feels like a throbbing pain, like when you smash your thumb with a hammer. Sometimes it's a sharp pain like a bad charley horse. The pain can hit almost anywhere, from your jaw to your toes.

I get sharp shooting pains too. mostly hands and arms and sometimes toes. I guess it's from the RA.
