Advice please (on RA foot)
blewin posted:
hi guys, I've been diagnosed with RA for 6 months and have recently had a flare more intense than before, so i'm not sure what to make of it. Usually when it flared, it subsided then the joint worked like normal in 2-3 days. I'm not on any med atm except NSAID when needed.

It's my right foot ankle. I took NSAID for 3 days. The inflammation subsided, but dull ache remains. Then I got very tiny sharp pain in my finger joint, so I took NSAID for another 2 days (about 2 days afterwards). Now I'm pain free everywhere else but the pain in my ankle suddenly got sharper.

Does that mean it's flaring again? what's happening.....

Any advice is much appreciated.
