Hi, I've ha ra for 12 years. It's been controlled well with methtrexate.weekly and remicade by IV every 7 weeks. After diagnosis I felt life as iI. knew it was over. RA definitely changes your life but over time I've learned that it can be kept under control. I joined an aerobics class about 10 years ago and am more active now than before RA! So for those newly diagnosed with RA know that once your doc gets you on the right meds for you, you'll probably get back to the person you were beforehand. The downside of being active is that I sometimes push myself too hard. Yesterday my husband and I mixed and poured concrete to solve a drainage problem. We're in the New Orleans area so it's HOT & humid. We were outside working from 9 am til 3 pm. I drank lots of water and two vitamin waters. Last night and today I feel like the RA is flared up. Achy joints and muscles,lots of joint popping. Anyone have this happen? Seeing rheumatologist for regular.scheduled visit and get remicade the next week. This IS NOT the type of pain from say doing some gardening. Can it be from dehydration? Thanks, and better days are comiing

Yes dehydration and diet can effect inflammation symptoms.
