Joint Pain and RA

Posted on March 26, 2018

I have noticed less pain in my joints today, but the headache has been so debilitating I didn't get any advantage from it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be headache free and be able to move my joints too! Fingers crossed! - A member of myRAteam

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Joint pain is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about joint pain:

How do you describe a flare to someone who doesn't have RA?
How aggressively was your RA treated when first diagnosed?
Has anyone had severe pain to touch in the first joint of big toe?

Here are some conversations about joint pain:


Saw a primary care doctor for the onset of anemia. She was concerned at how fast my blood levels changed. Now on a high dose of B12 drops and iron. I think it's helping. But have to take a pain med for the joint pain for now.
My muscle and joint pain has gone from my neck & shoulders to my back so I am laying low for now.
I fell on black ice on Friday, and everwhere I landed is sore. Now I have the flu alone with my joint pain. I have just been resting my wounds.

Can you relate?
