I was diagnosed with RA 7 years ago, luckily for me it went away when I fell pregnant with my eldest daughter 5 years ago. Unfortunately it decided to rear its ugly head again. I am on sulfasalazine and naproxen. For the past few weeks I have had a cough which I couldn't shift followed by a sharp sort of pain in the centre of my chest, its painful when I breathe in so went to see Gp on tuesday. She sounded my chest and said sounded fine but gave me antibiotics. This is day 3 of them and chest is just as painful especially when I am lying down. After reading various things on the web (I know, I shouldnt do it!) I am starting to wonder if this could be down to Ra or my meds, rather than just a chest infection or cold. am I worrying for nothing and should have more faith in my gp? Any thoughts would be appreciated
