Hi all, I'm hoping for some advice or just some reassurance.
I have inflammatory arthritis and take 25mg MTX a week, I have my ups and downs but mainly with fatigue these days. However over the last week I have had a couple of days of pretty severe widespread pain (hands, feet, elbows, ankles, back, hip...), this is new for me as my arthritis is mainly in 1 knee and (weirdly) turns up from time to time in my clavicle joints. After a few days of cocodamol I spoke to the rheumy team and had my bloods checked, turns out my CRP is normal and bloods show nothing odd. I now feel like it's all in my head!
Had anyone else had experience of flare symptoms like severe pain, but very little swelling and normal bloods?
