I have had a blister type rash that is very itchy all over my body for over 3 weeks. Both my Rheumotologist and a dermatologist cannot identify it. Has anyone had a similar issue. Could this be related to RA?
I’m 31 father of 4 I work all day my wife works all night. I’m to the point that my long flare ups are taking away from my day to say life at work and home. I work a very physical job and I used my hands all day. Just wondering what everyone else’s opinion and how you manage to live your life with flare ups that come out of no where and last for an undetermined amount of time.

I have very stiff fingers and they hurt all day long. I’ve been having trouble with writing even. I also can’t make meatloaf or cut vegetables since it makes my hands cold and hurt so much. Has anyone had these things happen?

How much of a risk are you to infection really? And how do you avoid it with so many little germ magnets around?? The… read more
It’s that time of the year. New recommendations to discuss with your doctor.
I have newly diagnosed RA. Feet, hands, ankles, wrists hips hurt..I often get whole body pain specifically noticing arms get really weak and feel constant dull pain.
Is this part of the RA? My rhemy thinks it's fibromyalgia on top of RA. She says RA only affects joints. But could it be referred pain from surrounding joints? How to treat it?
