What questions would any of you who also have RA ask ? Im sure theres some connection but not sure what how why etc was diagnosed last April but had lung probs four years prior and liver raised alt - which rheumatologist said was definitly inflamation driven .....but no pain in joints at this time just my lunh problems started then and each year have got worse . Any advice appreciatex . Thanks Judith x

Sorry I am unable to be of more help, I have not been diagnosed with RA, but I have often thought back over the years and have . Noticed a few of my historical health issues have been of an inflammatory nature as is my lung condition. X

Hmm well according to my last chest consultant it didnt!!!!! But it does ....i will let you know what she says. Its a bit coincidence that my liver was elavated the same time as my lung started and then diagnosed with RA last year and this year lungs been worst ever . Of course im not a specialist but my new chest consultant said its a possibility its connected xxxx so you just never know
