When will I learn that flare ups can happen what ever drugs you are on! I had a tumble on Friday and on Saturday had a very painful hand, my daughter took me to A n E as I thought I'd broken my wrist. I had been put on extra medication so thought it couldn't be RA!!!! Had x-rays and told to attend fracture clinic. I now think it was just RA!!! as pain and swelling have gone down what a fool I feel!!
