Fibromyalgia and/or Arthritis?

Arthritis word cloud concept

Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis are different diseases but they can occur together. Here’s the difference:

 

Rheumatoid vs Arthritis Symptoms

  • RA can impair your muscles and joint, while the pain from fibro does not damage them.
  • Fibro patients have trouble sleeping while RA patients do not.
  • RA is slowly progressive, while fibro is episodic.
  • Without treatment, RA symptoms worsen. Serious cases can damage major organs.
  • If your joints are red and swollen, you have RA.
