    I was in a car accident in 2007.. had whip lash.. possiblefracture to the scafroid. I also had stress to this accident, I was always in pain, had a hard time getting out of bed. sometimes causing parelization. My joints were swelling up, then i was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis, there is no one in family history with this disease. So is it possible a trauma to the body and stress can cause Rheumatoid arthritis?
