Hi there! I have been diagnosed with RA since age 16, and over the past two years have had terrible trouble with my TMJ (Jaw joint) I have been having steroid injections into the joint every 6 months and these have really helped! It may be something to consider?

Hi - I had jaw pain for a while - I was in mid-flare at the time. A course of prednisolone helped. Maybe your throat is connected: muscular etc? Call your doc or rheumatologist tomorrow. What we have is transient: ever-changing so we have to go with the flow - but then you'd know that.
