What Other Comorbities /side Effects Have Others Had With RA?

What Other Comorbities /side Effects Have Others Had With RA?

Since being diagnosed, I’ve had rotator cuff repair, tibial tendon repair x 2 on the same ankle, a tear in my labrum on my hip which was repaired this past May, but now i need a hip replacement. I’m only 51. Should i expect many more surgeries?
I also had a subarachnoid bleed and stroke that the doctors tell me isn’t related. I’m afraid of my future and just wondering what others have gone through😟

Does Anyone Have Problems With Their Elbows Locking? It's Difficult To Do And Then They End Up Making A Horrible Snapping Sound.

Does Anyone Have Problems With Their Elbows Locking? It's Difficult To Do And Then They End Up Making A Horrible Snapping Sound.

My elbows have been sore for several days now. When I fully extend my arm the joint locks and then it's difficult to get it to straighten. I then hear a snapping noise and it releases. Certain angles make it hurt worse, for example of I turn to reach something. Since this started both of my forearms ache constantly like pulled muscles. My first appointment with the rheumatologist is coming up soon and my family doctor just said to wait for that to check it out.

Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion Cysts

Does anyone else have ganglion cysts on joints? Is this a RA thing? What does a RA nodule look and feel like? It's on the outside ankle joints of both ankles. And I I have one that is on the inside of my elbow bend (right next to the vein they draw blood from) that hurts. They've all appeared in the last 2 months. I had one on the top of my wrist this fall, but it has gone way down.
Any info would be great.

@A myRAteam Member Nodules are most common around fingers & elbows but can pop up anywhere. It sounds like the bump between your toes could be a nodule but you should have your doctor look at it. My… read more

How To Tell When Its Time For A Shoulder Replacement

How To Tell When Its Time For A Shoulder Replacement

I have tons of popping and cracking when moving my arm in different directions. Xrays show total degeneration. Pain wakes me up at night, and intensifies if I use my arm more than normal or with weight added. Pretty sure there are some tears in rotator cuff based on symptoms. Doc just ordered MRI. What does the MRI show that determines a replacement needed versus rotator cuff surgery? Thanks for helping me understand.
