I was diagnosed with RA back in 2012 and am on daily hydroxychloroquine. Although I'm fairly well controlled, I still experience near-constant pain in the balls of my feet. But that's not why I'm posting.
I'm curious as to whether my joints are more prone to injury. For example, crushing a bubbble bar into my bath left me with knuckle pain for 3 weeks. And last week, after using a new razor that put a bit more pressure on my fingerjoints than usual, the knuckle is now incredibly tender.
In both cases, the joints in question weren't giving me noticable jip before the 'incidents'. So I was wondering whether it's possible that minor joint damage could have left the joints more fragile and prone to injury than someone without RA?
Does anyone else get this?
