I was wondering if somebody here experience the same thing as I am. I have joint pains in the fingers and knees most of the time. Especially in the morning. Then one day, I had an outbreak of sores on the lips (possibly herpes simplex, as my dermatologist suggested) and because of the outbreak, I feel no more joint pains! It is actually amazing. I remembered that RA is where your own immune system attacks the body causing joint pains. This gave me an idea that since I had an outbreak, my immune system became busy with a real threat rather than the body itself.
Right now my sores are healing, and the joint pains is starting to appear again. Does anybody here experienced the same thing?
This gave me an idea also that is the immune system is busy, there is no pain. Sooooo maybe if I get some flu vaccine, will it also keep my immune system busy doing what it should do rather than attack itself?
Thanks for hearing me out!
