Tips, Information, and Insights on Joint Pain and Treatment From the WebMD Rheumatoid Arthritis Community

A WebMD Community member says she's approaching menopause and notices she gets extreme RA body aches and joint pain not long after the end of her cycle each month. She asks other members if they've had similar experiences.

One male member with rheumatoid arthritis says he takes injections to raise his testosterone. He says his doctor said low hormones were affecting his pain and energy levels. Another member says she also gets pain each month along with her cycle. The pain and soreness are so bad, she says, she feels like she's fighting the flu every month.

Do hormones seem to affect your RA symptoms?
