    RA & Bowel inflammation

    Hello... Does anyone with RA also experience what I call Bowel Attacks? I'm developing more food intolerances too as time goes on. I first noticed reaction to Pork. I'd get a distended stomach and painful cramping followed by urgent watery diarrhea and cramping that both lasts an hour or more until there is nothing to expel. Sometimes it is accompanied by vomiting too. It's absolutely horrible and no GI can really say what's wrong with me except they suggest it is IBS?!? It is too....

    RA Factor off the charts

    My RA Factor is now 1605. It was 1305 in 2015, 1390 in 2017, and now 1605! It scares me to see it going even higher. I've been taking Enbrel injections for years and wonder if I should try something else. My rheumatologist keeps telling me its time to quit work and rest. Any advice or suggestions out there?

    Someone please help me

    Please help me I am 25 years old. Mostly healthy. I have had joint pain in my fingers and hands for as long as I can remember. The pain gradually got worse as I got older.

I wake up stiff and sore everywhere and extremely nauseous. I couldn't do sports like the other kids, I was and still am always so fatigued.....

    Coming out of remission?

    I was diagnosed with RA in May of 2014. I took Methotrexate and various different biologics, trying to find one that didn't give me petechial rashes. I was on Enbrel last year. In November I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so I stopped all RA medications in preparation for surgery. Then after surgery my doctors told me to stay off those meds during radiation as well, which occurred in February and March. After finishing all my treatment, I went back to my rheumatologist, who asked how I was....
