Hi everyone for the last day and a half I’ve had a pain in my shoulder and arm. Shoulder is a bit swollen and also fingers. I’m wondering if this is a flare up or trapped nerve. I am going to ring doctor today for steroids as I haven’t been able to sleep for 2 nights with pain. I’m maxed out on codeine and ibuprofen. I sometimes wonder if it is a flare up or something else. I can’t get dressed to go to doctors so I’m relying on him to make a decision as to steroids. I’ve RA for 3 years now and was stable on my meds.
During that time I’ve had a couple of flare ups in hands and feet but never shoulder.
Anybody else had a problem with shoulder
