Q: Becky asks: for the past couple of months, I've been stiff and sore and soooo tired. My wrists and ankles are swollen. Could I have RA?
A: Common signs of RA are morning stiffness, swelling and pain in joints, especially symmetrical (i.e., on both hands, both ankles, both knees). You may have RA, but only a rheumatologist will be able to say for sure. Talk to your primary care physician about getting a referral.
