travelling Pain


Something new that has recently started. My pain starts in hips and moves to knees and then to ankles, while in shoulders as well. I always have some pain but this moving can actually be felt. I was just wondering if any one else has experienced this sort of thing. Thanks all and have a great day; I am new on here and think this site is great.

Hi Donna,

In the early days before confirmed diagnosis of RA, my Consultant suspected Palindromic arthritis, as the pain was travelling around my different joints it was nearly a joke where it would appear next. The Consultant described this as the disease trying to catch hold. God knows? I'm not sure what stage you are at, but I would suggest you contact your Consultant & discuss.

Regards, Gina.

Hi Gina, thanks for the reply and I will definitely ask next week when I see him. Did you end up having Palindromic Arthritis ?? And is that part of RA.?



That is exactly what happened to me just before i was diagnosed, for about 6 months, i would wake up in the morning and wonder where the pain would be today, some days shoulders, some days, knees, it was so strange - there was a constant underlying ache but the extreme pain shifted. It was then continuously persistent and i was diagnosed with RA.


Thank you for reply. It is nice to know others feel the same.
