aches and burning sensation related to RA?

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi everyone,

Not too sure what going on with my body. But about 2 weeks ago, my lower back, hip and elbow was started to ache. I was thinking that it could be nothing because I was starting to get back into my normal exercise routine.

Just last night, my whole back and between my shoulder blades had started to ache like I was exercising funny or something. Then I noticed my chest had a burning sensation.

This morning I still have the same symptoms but not as intense as last night.

I don't want to jump into bigger conclusions just yet but what was popping up on the internet was that it could be fibromyalgia.

Does fibromyalgia have anything to do with rhumatoid arthritis? Have anyone else experience anything like this before?

I'm getting a slight anxiety because more symptoms are happening and I don't understand what's going on.

    Rheumatoid swells, swelling compresses nerves, compressed nerves tingle and burn. And yes, another possibility is fibromyalgia.

    Sorry for your discomfort. You should get to your doctor soon. Often you can get a shorter wait time for your appointment if you tell them you are in pain.

    Best of luck to you.
