RA, Fibro, and/or PsR

Does anyone else have the burning muscle pain, and sore spots similar to Fibro and did your doctor say it was from inflammation from RA or PSA? Where is your joint pain?

Hi there!

RA is primarily a systemic disease than a disease specific to the joints and may cause muscular pain similarly to fibromyalgia, secondary to inflammation. While RA has both clinical features and laboratory tests in the diagnostic criteria, fibromyalgia is primarily a diagnosis of exclusion with clinical features.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
