I had a bout with it in my jaw a couple of months ago. Lasted for a week or two then disappeared as mysteriously as it came. I could barely open my mouth and brushing my teeth was so painful! I think RA picks somewhere new to attack every time you get one place to feeling better. Crazy disease!

Thank you everyone for your responses, sorry you’ve experienced this awful disease but I’m grateful to know I’m not the only one. Sometimes my Rheumatologist doesn’t get it & downplays my flares like he’s never heard of RD as the cause of this & other common symptoms. Bless you all
