Flare or Not Flare?

Last updated: April 2022

I saw my new rheumatologist Monday.

Good rheumatologist relationship

I am very impressed with him. He is testing me for lupus now too.

I am having some unusual muscle pain and a new rash that is weird. Plus my toes are white 90% of the time not to mention they tingle a lot as do my fingers.

But that's got nothing to do with my question.

Fever related to RA flare?

Over the last two days, I have randomly spiked a fever to over 101 along with my various aches increased so do any of y'all think this is a flare?

Blood work was done Monday but I haven't heard back yet.
