I have been prescribed 210mg Ferrous Fumarate for about 7 weeks to treat anaemia following blood loss during operation. In the same period my RA condition - pain and stiffness - has seriously deteriorated and has flared up in areas previously not affected. My daily RA treatment is 150mg of Naproxin having previously refused Leflonomide.
Worsening arthritis is not a known side effect of iron supplementation.
It is most likely a coincidence.
