Just over a week ago I was stung by a wasp,it swelled up quite badly & hasn't really gone down, it was on my elbow joint. Anyway I'm not sure if related but since then I've had a flare & really haven't felt well at all. Up until then I was beginning to convince myself that the docs have got it all wrong & I should stop the meds n get on with my life,well I got that wrong! Yesterday my jaw & ear were so painful I didn't know what to do with myself. I can't take painkillers but today it's gone. Am I right in thinking it has to be RA? An infection wouldn't disappear overnight would it? & could a sting cause a flare. This is the worst I've felt in months. x
