Tina I’m the same way I’ve been flaring up since Feb and it just doesn’t go away. Toes, ankles, hands and wrist. Now are so painful. Still waiting results on my blood work so I can be on humira. I hope you better.
Yes. Everyone is different though. My feet, ankles, knees and hands swell a lot of the time. My hands hardly ever go down. I hope you get relief soon.
I also had swelling in my feet and ankles over the Winter, but mine turned out to be related to my having taken Celebrex for too long, 21 years! Unfortunately, even though it was still working great for me, my doctor had to take me off it because it was affecting my kidneys, which was the reason for the swelling.
If you've been having any swelling in your ankles and feet for some time, you really should have your doctor run some tests first to see what could be causing it and not just automatically think it's from your RA.
