Hi i was recently diagnosed with seronegative rheumatoid arthritis in May. I have been reading peoples posts everyday and it is reassuring to know other people are having similar problems to me, i just wanted to know does stress and anxiety make your symptoms worse? I have been on Hydroxychloroquine for about 3 months now and i am feeling a lot better, i feel like my joints have been oiled, they actually feel loose!! But i do still get some pain and tenderness mainly in my hands and wrists, elbows, knees and ankles + left foot. I have recently applied for a new job where i work and have an interview tomorrow each day i am getting more anxious and stressed about it and have noticed my joints are starting to hurt more, especially today, after a night shift, which doesn't help! Does anyone else have the same problem?
