  • Hi All, I'm from the US and feel blessed to have found this forum. I too have RA and am presently on Acterma, Methrotrexate, Diclifonac, Folic Acid daily and Tramadol for pain. I've had my left knee and hip replaced. I too get that pain in my arm from my shoulder to my elbow and can barely lift my arm. I was told it can be from one or two things, first my rotator cup(?) is gone and what's left is bone on bone or arthritis between c2 & c3 in my spine. Drs want to replace Shoulder but for now I just get cortisone shots. Thanks for letting me ramble. Wishing all of you pain free days and gentle hugs!
