RA symptoms like flu symptoms?

My RA diagnosis was in May. Since about that time I have felt like I have a flu that won't leave. I am all aches, soreness and stiffness. I can't remember so I am not sure if I felt this way before I started taking the meds. Can anyone else relate?

Feeling this way is making work very difficult.

That's how I felt before my diagnosis. The RA just sucked the energy right out of me. It wasn't until after 3 months of meds that I finally had energy back and didn't feel like I was sick. I am sorry that you had to join the RA club. The good news is that the meds work pretty good now.

I still don't have the energy I once did, but it is nowhere as crappy as it was at first.

Hi there!!!

Poor you that you got this condition. It can make you miserable. RA hit me super hard. It was so awful. I was studying at college. I barely passed my courses at that semester. My marks dropped from A's to low C's. It was very stressful.

Try for being hopeful though. If you get a good rheumatologist and correct medications, the disease is many times manageable.

I hope your medications soon work,

Rose

What you are feeling is very common. To make the situation more manageable, you might consider taking your medications on Friday or Saturday, Many of the medications can add to your flu-like symptoms in the beginning. By taking these on the weekend, you will leave yourself with the most energy for your work days.

Please feel free to ask any further questions or just to vent. Many of us have had the condition for years and can certainly relate.

It can take a while to feel better. I have been taking the drugs for months and I am still feeling fatigued. I have switched a few times too. Good luck to you.
