I have suffered from what I would call chronic shoulder pain for around 2 years now. Everyday seems to be unique as to pain level. I am always in pain in both shoulders on some level but I get what id call flare ups quite often where the pain is debilitating and hard to go about daily life. Ive taken prednisone, celebrex, tramadol, done physiotherapy but it never goes away. Pain killers only somewhat ease the pain. I do occasionally get some pain in the hip.
A rheumatologist has prescribed plaquenil for me to take to see if that helps but he has never specifically said I have RA. From what i understand is its joint pain, but Is it possible to have RA when its only really my shoulders?
