Can anyone enlighten me as I am due to go to the Rheumy clinic tomorrow and over the last couple of weeks, i have been having flushes but not sure if this is related to RA or if it is my imagination. I am in between meds at the moments as Hydroxy made me feel ill so only taking Arcoxia and had steriod injection 8 weeks ago. I am feeling pretty awful at the moment anyway with sore wrists, stiff fingers painful joints etc and also pain in ankles. I will be glad to get back to the clinic to see if they can start me on stronger meds as I feel dreadful. The fatigue is one of the worst things about it but can't explain to anyone as they don't really understand. I have also got someone in work who suffers with Osteo and she is mirroring my symptoms now which is really annoying. I am not talking to her about it any more, as eveytime i am in her vicinity she starts rubbing her wrists.
Sorry to go on but on final question, is it difficult to sleep properly at night with RA as over the last few weeks i have been unable to sleep and keep waking up every couple of hours which is really frustrating but don't know why. don't want to embarras myself at the clinic tomorrow if these symptoms are my imagination. I am quite new to RA as only diagnosed in July.
