Hello peeps - it seems that I am a new RA sufferer having had a vicious virus in November which triggered it off! I've had OA for ages, and have 2 bionic hips - which are also aching like crazy. Waiting now for official diagnosis and medication, but in the meantime as I am only taking NSAIDs as yet, can anyone tell me if a flare includes brain fog or even freeze?? I am not usually so tired and just totally unable to do anything for long - even read a book which for me is unheard of! I've been reading some of your posts and I think I am going to find a lot of help here, so thanks in advance. t115006
