I have been diagnosed with mild RA for about 1 year nowbut all bloodwork etc is negative. Am on MTX now by injection 20mg but it doesn't seem to be having any effect after 3 months. Sulfasaluzide didn'[t work either. This past 3 days have not been able to go to work hardly able to do anything. Lots of pain. Swelling in knee and ankles and extreme exhaustion but not able to sleep for pain at night. Paradoxical or what... Walking has been really hard even with stick. Also woolley headed and unable to concentrate on anything - just want to doze. Exercise out of question. What I want to know is - is this what they call a "flare up" since it the first episode I have had like this. Normally just normal (well for me) levels of pain and tiredness etc. and also can you get a flare up when you have negative bloods and everything else?? - Can anyone help clarify this. Thanks for your help. Gill
