Is it just me who tends not to get morning stiffness? When my RA is bad, it's "all bleedin' day" stiffness. I remember when I was in the process of being diagnosed, feeling quite confused when they asked if my morning stiffness lasted a while because it never seemed to ease. Nowadays, I have a better grip on the disease and I do have morning stiffness and it does improve as I get going (as long as I neck enough naproxen and co-codamol the minute I get out of bed). At the moment, I'm mid flare and I have that tight, cement feeling all day again. "Morning" stiffness, indeed!!
