does rheaumatoid arthiritis flare up more in the evenings?

Dr. Pierre Moeser
Specializes in Rheumatology
No: Rheumatoid stiffness tends to be worse after inactivity. Thus, mornings may be worse. Some people are sore in the evenings after a full day's activity but flares do not generally occur in the evening.
