recently, my forearm has been killing me and tightening up and aching. I have like four mosquito bites on my arm and one on my elbow that has recently began to swell. My family has a strong history of arthritis but I wonder if it is just the bug bites.
also..this is random but I’m bulimic but I doubt it has anything to do with that...maybe it helps to add.
My son used to have strong reactions to mosquito bites, but he eventually outgrew it.
It wouldn't surprise me if bulimia compromised your immune system; if you already have a family tendency toward RA, anything could trigger your immune system to overreact - an infection or virus, for example. Are you in treatment for bulimia?
