In brief: You should tell him
It turns out most people who tell their doctor they have rheumatoid arthritis don't really have it.
In other words, a lot of people think they have rheumatoid arthritis but don't. Hopefully you are in that situation. Normally the medications you take for rheumatoid arthritis would alert him that you have that. If you have redness, hot, stiffness in your joints see your doctor again about it.
