I have my first appointment with a Consultant in 3 weeks.
I was just wondering if it is usual with RA to have a stiff neck with pain that seems to go right up into my head. I also have stiffness, pain and a 'burning' in between my shoulder blades. I've had a 'feel' of my neck, and I am very sore right at the top of my spine up into where it goes into the skull.
The headaches are horrible and like no headache I've ever had before, and seem to go right into my face (although I also have pain in my jaw that could be causing this).
Could this be the RA?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
