Whats the difference between a flare up and daily symptoms?
For the last 2 months I have been in chronic pain, but not as intense as when I was first diagnosed. It is milder but is all over my body. Is this just a very long flare up, or is it due to working manual labor each day?
My first symptoms were swollen feet and ankles that left me with intense pain and the inability to walk. My Dr. says my RA is under control, but it is my work that is the problem. The last 2 months have been daily, body wide pain. It is not intense pain, but each day feels like I played a football game the night before. Rest will help, but after a little bit of work, I am back to where I started.
