Rheumatologist Questions Arthritis

Is there any way to predict arthritis flare-ups?

Why do I have some days when I feel great and some days it hurts too bad to get out of bed? I don't think I'm doing anything different on those days!

Arthritis can wax and wane, it can flare and raise its ugly head and it can react to changes in atmospheric pressure
Possible you can have flare up or depends on weather, stress level which can also make you feel same.
Good morning!

Unfortunately, RA has its ups and downs, and some days are better than others. The bad days should be less in frequency as the disease gets under control with the help of your rheumatologist.

Weather has been shown to have a great impact on arthritis pain and stiffness.
