Subject: Does this sound like an RA episode?

I went to see a physio for my hypermobile joints and lordosis.

She also thinks I have rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis- due to wear and tear from HMS. I have swelling and pain in my knees, like they're in a vice.

I had this weird episde in my teens where I woke up and my hands and knees were swollen and buring but the next morning they were fine.

I wonder if this was a RA episode?

hi lillie , hypermoblie joints will cause a lot of problems but tends to go away in your twentys & settles down

as for the other problems , I would see your GP , they can take a load of blood test & show if you have Rheumatiod factor & if there is inflammation showing & maybe send you for a xray

I'm 30 and the hypermobility still causes me a lot of pain. All my joints pop in and out and are loose.

The physio thinks it's 'settling down' in the form of osteoarthitis as many of my joints are stiffening up or constantly popping in and out.

But she said I could also have RA as well. But just wondering if that was a possible episode.

Thanks for taking the time to reply
xx
