When I lay down my left arm goes locked up and it very much hurts to move it from ra. Doctor gave me a shot of pred. Helped but now hurts more. Whatnow?
Pred = palliative: Corticosteroids (in pill form or injection) should only be used short term, and should never be the mainstay of your treatment. If your arm is locking up (is it your shoulder or elsewhere?), you may have a torn rotator cuff or some other problem that requires additional evaluation and treatment. You should see a rheumatologist if you haven't already. ...Read more

I have lupus fibermyalgia RA my hands and arm feel like there on fire hands swelling and muscles hurt. Could it be from any of my illnesses?
Absolutely: Your swelling could be due to the RA, which would also cause pain in the joints. Fibromyalgia can cause diffuse pain anywhere in the body. Make sure you are followed by a rheumatologist who can help get these symptoms under control. I would also suggest extra vitamin D (5000 units of D3 daily). Studies suggest that higher amounts my decrease the frequency and severity of flare-ups. ...Read more

Dr suspects disc herniation bc I have bad pain&numbness in my back, arms, &both legs. Lately my hands/bottom of feet hurt to. Could it be RA instead?
Less likely: While it is not impossible for RA to affect large joints like the back/spine, it is much more likely to affect the smaller joints such as in the fingers. However, in order for there to be a disc herniation affecting both your arms and legs it would have to be quite high up, in your upper back or neck. Testing, including CT/MRI imaging, and blood tests are needed. Work with your doctor to diagnose. ...Read more

Yes due to FALSE NEG: Every test in the world has a FALSE NEGATIVE rate which tells what percentage of the time a test comes out negative but really it should say positive.
