How do I know if pain is RA related or something else ?
I was diagnosed with sero negative RA nearly 12 months ago – so still learning. I had lower back pain and hip issues prior to diagnosis. Now the pain is getting worse especially after sitting or bending. Need heat packs whenever time allows and tramadol. I take 20 mg mtx weekly, lyrica, diclofanec A.P and wear a Norspan patch. I don’t want to run to the GP for every little pain. I don’t know if its related or not. How will I know the difference or won’t I ?! Thanks in advance. Gentle Hugs to all
