Why are my eyes burning?

When I get pummeled with bouts of unrelenting fatigue, it manifests mainly in my eyes–they are super heavy, glossed over and burn (and headache too.) I know that eyes can be affected with RA, but these symptoms don’t sound consistent with typical RA eye-related problems. Anyone else experience this? I just want to lock myself in a dark room.

    Sorry you are having these issues kingkatekong. As with any new symptom or potential side-effect, you should bring this to the attention of your doctor. This article from one of our contributors looks at headaches and migraine and RA, including the link to inflammation and certain medications: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/ra-can-be-a-real-headache-literally/.
