Hello, I was just diagnosed with Seronegative RA at 54. Some of the issues I have been experiencing over the last few years may be directly related to the RA but there is so much info out there. If it is due to the RA it would make a lot of sense and be a bit of a relief in a way. I don't sleep well at all and very little some nights. I am warm at times but no fever, stiff joints (hands, wrists for the most part). Within the last year continuous eye pain and I have seen my eye doctor three times and she says all is well, but she did not clear me for Plaquenil. Within the last three months I have developed a headache with a lot of pressure that does not seem to fully go away and makes it difficult to lay my head down and comes with neck pain. I have seen a few specialists and the MRI was clear. I follow up with my rheumatologist in two weeks and she is aware of the symptoms but does not elaborate at all. She did however rule out another issue when I shared the headache but told me to see a neurologist after that.
I realize this is a lot, trust me I know. Just curious if anyone else has had similar symptoms ? Also, I am on my third dose of methotrexate once a week and the symptoms in my hands became worse after starting and I have developed pain/cramps in my calves? Just wanted to know if any of this sounds familiar to anyone, thank you.
