You were probably going through an inactive spell. Arthritis once you hve it dosnt go away as it is incurable, it can go through active and inactive spells.
You need to get an appointment with a rheumatologist who can help manage the arthritis with the correct pain meds as well as medicaion to slow down the deterioration in the joints the disease causes.
I have had RA now for 28 years since teh age of 2. The disease is unpredictable but you can live your life to the fullest you can as long as you get teh correct medication and support.
This forum is full of lovely people who will give you as much support as they can so dont hesitate to ask anything you want to
