Do any of you have severe muscle pain in your arms, hands, and legs? Or do you hurt mostly in joints?
My joints are my main problems but yes I do sometimes have severe muscle pain sometimes mainly in my upper arms
me too! I describe it as the feeling you get after a flu vaccination or being punched but the pain never stops or goes away.
Do u have fibromyalgia
No. But I have Dermatomyositis as well as RA
Have ur dr test u for fibromyalgia...it affects the muscles.... Very painful
Yep all the time
Yes. I currently have pain in the muscles in my upper arms as well.
Yes, although less since I started taking potassium and magnesium
Fibro here... PAIN ALL OVER
Yes, upper arms. Even when on meds that make the shoulders better, the muscles and tendons that run from the shoulders to b the elbows are still very sore. Heating pad and patches help me.
Me too!! Tendons super sore in arms and hands!
Yes! Thought I was the only one. Muscles in arms between shoulders and elbows.... İt's awful!
I get the same pain. The area between the shoulder and elbow. It is awful. Goes stiff and you can't use your arm.
I have it too... Still determining if it's result of fibro or sleep apnea
I thought I was the only one too arcy Munoz. I'm having physical therapy right now. I'm hoping it will help.
I'd love to know if it helps you. I've been considering PT
I had cortisone injections first. It felt bettter for a few days. Been doing PT for about 4 weeks. It seems better. I still have a click in the right shoulder joint but its not as bad. I will be going for another couple weeks. Im hopeful.
I have muscle pain as well. I'm wondering if it's more than just RA.
I have a lot of muscle pain and spasms all the time. I don’t get it.
Initially my first symptoms were muscle and bone pain. After a year my joint pain started all over my body.
Both. I tried to step over a rail Yesteday that was about six inches tall and scraped my leg in the front. Couldnt even lift my leg that high. Pitiful.
Thanks for all the comments. It's very helpful. I also have Dermatomyositis, and I'm just wondering if that's what the muscle pain is from, or if RA causes muscle pain too. I have joint pain in multiple places. But the muscle pain seems to be the most unbearable.
Yes. That is bc our muscles are trying to do a job that they were never meant to do, over compensating for joints that do not work.
I have leg muscle aching when I have sugar.... When I go off my eating program !!
Sometimes I have excruciating pain in the muscles in my arms too. Bio Freeze helps very much!
Yes, I also have fibromyalgia though.
Synovial fluid is what Ra attacks. There is synovial fluid in your muscles. Between the fascia layers, Ra eats it, my Ra is in my tendons I have chronic tendonitis no joint pain.. I have even had tendons rupture .
Do you know anything about Bovine Tracheal Cartilage? I've never taken it, but doing some research.
Here lately I have been dealing with muscle pain. The Dr wants to start me on Humira injections but i am scared of side effects.
I’ve taken Humira for a year and it’s works well for me.
Use Enbrel instead of Humira. Humira gave me back pain and stomach cramps and enbrel didn’t
hurt mostly in joints
I've got a swollen leg it's quite painful SIM off to the docs tomorrow
Yes it’s part of the flare up my doctor gave me a mild muscle relaxer.
I've never had it before I started taking hydroxychloroquine
Last 20 yrs mainly joints, now muscles around joints as well.
