Hi I'm 21 years old and female and am concerned I have RA. I have really sore feet (I remember an episode a couple of years ago where I couldn't even walk but it went away after two weeks), I have sore bunions and there's an area between my toes that really hurts, my hands are constantly achey and feel really weak, I work in a lab and when I use a pipette I find it incredibly difficult, my shoulders etc constantly ache and my lower back/spine also hurts, sometimes I get sharp pain in my back. My ribs also sometimes feel like they're caving in (sounds silly I know). I generally just feel weak and TIRED. I'm having difficulty sleeping but on days when I do get a good nights rest I just get a wave of tiredness over me and the only way to get over it is to take a nap. I also have a especially sore back in the mornings. I could be jumping to conclusions because it doesn't sound like I have it as bad as most of you on here, I just haven't been myself the last four months and my nana did have RA. I'm going to see my doctor on monday. Oh I also get a sore throat every now and then and my glands feel swollen. Any feedback would be great!
