no swelling??

Can joints be arthritic without swelling? i have had joint pain in most of my joints for months but with no swelling.



  • When my joints first started hurting I had little to no swelling, my diagnosis took some time and a lot of test, bloodwork, x-rays and ultra sound, RA showed up in my blood work and ultra sound confirmed joint damage, swelling did eventually come and I have a lot of it now in several joints, hopefully your's was caught earlier than mine, I was stubborn about going to the doctor about it and it had progressed quite a bit before I started any treatment.

    Take care and keep us posted


  • I did not have swelling at first, but as things progressed the swelling occurred.
