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.
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 do experience that i feel like its because of all the lifting i do, my shoulder joints are extremely tight and sometimes i also have pain in the muscles below my should joints. Im not sure if this is helpful,my wrists burn as well
