Arthritis after childbirth

Postby Chuckles » Sun Aug 21, 2016 9:31 am

Hi ladies. Do any of you any symptoms of arthritis after childbirth? I had my lb in January. I have always had back pain but in the last two months, I have developed pain and stiffness all over my body, except my hips. Fingers, toes, ankles, elbows and spine have all been affected. I have always had psoriasis and my GP referred me to a rheumatologist in recent weeks with concerns that I may have psoriatic arthritis. I had my first meeting with him on Thursday and he gave me a steroid injection to relieve pain and reduce swelling. Am hoping it will pass but have always had a history of back and neck pain so am a bit worried.

My mother. But I didn't realise that until lately that it was RA. Am 8 weeks pregnant now again and there is no improvement so far.
