Ok, So I have Rhuematoid arthritis, and im dealing with it, the good days, the bad days etc etc...However sometimes I feel like my body is on Fire...I mean I get soo Hot, and everyone else looks at me like im crazy, I know im not going through menapause beucase im only 30 years old...
Does anyone else feel like this, and do u think its those low grade fevers that we get from having RA...
I had to take myself off the RA MEds, beucase I was getting a serious drug interaction and it was cuasing me insane amounts of pain in my Head to the point that I couldnt function with these types of migraines, soo when I flare up really bad I start up my meds but then I stop them after a couple of days, and Ive been main streaming with Vicodens and Tylenol arthtis pills to take the edge off...
Now these hot flashes so to speak, I was getting them while on my RA meds and with out...So I know me stopping my meds probally doesnt have anything to do with it, but I notice that im feeling those hot flashes more often, So i guess my Ra is just acting up...
Any suggestions on how to regulate my body from feeling like an inferno...LOL would be greatly appreciated...
By the way, I hope everyone is doing great, I havent been on in a while...but today I just needed to vent....
take care,

I'm sooo Sorry you feel sooo Hot I know How you feel I'm going through the same thing I have psoratic arthritis and i'm taking methotrexate, and Remicade infusions and prednisone and I also feel like I'm burning up a lot of the time sometimes my Family touches me and they think I have a fever because im red like a tomato, sweating and hot. I'm goingto ask my rheumatologist on 6/2 what's up with that???   I'll let you know what she says. Hope you feel better soon. Keep me posted

Thank PR Glo, I really appreciated beucase My health insurance ran out, and I cant see my rhuemy until I can get some health insurance, and because I make too much on Unemployment according to the NYS Law, Im not quite eligible yet for Medicaid, which is ironic beucase what I make on unemplpyment barely pays for my bills or rent....So def let me know whats up with that when u see your doctor.....

I get hot too. Mostly my back and butt sting. Drives me nuts.
Could it be from chewing Nicorette Gum?
I have scoliosis, arthritis, disc probles, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain.
You guys would be much more likely to dx me than my doctor.
