Bruising?

Is bruising easily another symptom of RA? I'm waiting to be diagnosed yet, but after speaking to my father today(he has RA), it truly does sound like I have it. I have noticed the past couple of months bruises that seem to come from no where. I finally figured out where they were coming from, I get itchy, then scratch a bunch, and then I get a bruise.

Keto Diet?

Anyone here ever try a Keto diet? My husband just said he read it could be helpful for my muscle issues (maybe caused by a genetic condition.) It made me curious because I know I heard about it possibly being helpful for RA too.

I take a herbal medicine. I have to take it twice a day. So if i delay my evening time, I sometimes get this flu like feeling

My hands and feet become cold and numb. My muscles ache like in a viral infection. I start to get this feverish feeling also. And as soon as i take the meds it goes away. Just wondering if this happens to anyone else?

It started with a small section on one of my legs and both of my forearms. Within a few days it had spread so I went to the dermatologist who confirmed the skin… read more

I fell 2 months ago, right after being diagnosed with RA. I broke my arm in 2 places where it fits into the shoulder.

I fell 2 months ago, right after my RA diagnosis. I broke my upper arm bone in 2 places right where it fits into the shoulder. The bone is mending and finally quit hurting. Then a few days later the pain returned. I don’t know if this new pain my RA or is it my broken bone. Which doctor should I call?
