Has anyone had swelling and redness and warmth

I have an area on my upper stomach that is warm red and swelled. Could this be from RA when there are no joints in the area? It doesn’t hurt

RA can attack organs as well as joints.

RA and fibromyalgia they go hand by hand they both make you painful and tired.

Hi @A myRAteam Member. That sounds like costochondritis. Ive had that several times. Where the rib connects into the sternum is a joint and can become inflammed and painful. I think it's part of fibromyalgia for me. I had a medrol dose pack it trigger point injection in the trapezius muscle in my upper back to help relieve it. The pain that I get on my side there is no joint and I don't know what caused it except for maybe some inflammation in the area. I hope you find some relief!

I do not know. I kind of doubt it. Maybe something else is going on. If it stays that way , get it checked out. If there is warmth, redness and swelling, 'something' is inflammed !
