Hello. I wonder if anyone else suffers from what feel like bruised biceps? I have sero-neg RA with permanently-bent elbows and am intolerant of every drug. I take Oramorph daily for the pain and will have both elbow joints replaced when I can't stand it any longer.
Just lately my biceps (upper arms at the front) feel as though someone has punched me in both arms and is then poking fingers into the bruises. This makes my arms even more painful to use.
My consultant says it's probably related to my elbows but doesn't want to bother with an MRI and says that I should try to put up with it for as long as I can. He's reluctant for me to get my elbows replaced yet because I'm only 57, although the surgeon is willing to do them whenever I ask.
Does anyone suffer from anything similar? Many thanks.
