I would have to say no. Arthritis effects your joints. It's possible that when your arthritis is acting up, you're tensing your muscles up against the pain, or perhaps holding your body stiffly so as not to aggravate the pain. This may cause the muscles in your back and abdominal area to become sore and painful. I tend to tense my muscles against the pain without realizing it. When I do finally think about what I'm doing to myself, I will force myself to relax the muscles and then try some gentle movements to stretch them back out and get the blood flowing to them again. Or use my trusty heating pad to help relax them. That usually tends to bring me some relief. Hope this helps and your situation gets better!

Just a thought, but when my back is really bad, (arthritis, among other problems), the pain literally wraps around my pelvic area. I don't know what causes it, whether it is arthritis or neural damage, but regardless, I do know what you are talking about. It is not a comfortable feeling, and really I wish that there were something I could suggest to make you feel better, but aside from medication, there is nothing else. I generally just deal with it.
Best of luck to you!!
