After covid

I have just had covid about 4 weeks ago. The past few days my rheumatoid arthritis is flaring quite badly. Is this coincidence or a result of covid?

    Hi @Bellelainey and welcome to the versus arthritis forum. 

    You have recently had covid and are wondering if your recent RA flare up is connected. 

    Whilst I couldn’t find an existing discussion that specifically answers your question, this forum discussion may be of interest:

    Thanks for your post to the Helpline. I'm afraid we'd not be able to answer that question. If you are concerned that your arthritis is not under control for whatever reason it's worth getting in touch with your rheumatology specialist nurse.

    I see a link to our covid information is already in the chat.

    If you'd like to talk things over, do please ring us on our freephone 0800 5200520 Mon-Fri 9am-6pm.

    all the best
