Just a quick question, I have RA diagnosed about 3 yes ago. I'm lucky as an early diagnosis means I have no joint damage. What I'm asking is do you get muscle pains?
My consultant says RA doesn't affect your back or coccyx but I get regular aching in both. I have widespread non descript muscle aches like I've had a long gym session and haven't stretched but I've been no where near a gym.
My last steroid injection IM one eased all my aches greatly so I assumed it must be RA related but now I'm not sure.
I'm stuck with aches, should I take painkillers everyday on top of my normal RA injection cocktail our should I make more of a fuss that perhaps sometimes not working out should I be thinking its nothing to do with the RA and looking elsewhere?
Thank you in advance as I'm in a bit of a twist with my thinking.
Ps forgot to mention I'm 32, stay active and am in pretty good shape (despite the RA of course 😉)
