Up until recently, my symptoms have primarily been joint pain/swelling/stiffness and fatigue in what I would describe as intermittent flares. Today my pain has been about the worst it’s ever been with the new addition of muscle weakness. I always assumed that came with long term reduced activity in RA, but this came on suddenly this morning and is particularly bad in my upper legs, to the point of trembling if standing too long.
Is it common to have significant generalized muscle weakness with sudden onset like this? Is this something that will improve with the right meds? Is it any indicator as to the severity and/or the long term prognosis of the disease? I’m not liking how quickly this has gone south. TIA!
