I have 2 questions about RA and symptoms. My name is Joyce and I have recently been diagnosed with RA and one of the first symptoms I had, in addition to bad joint pain, was extreme fatigue. I sometimes slept for 2 to 3 days at a time and subsequently lost a lot of weight. Has anyone else experienced this same kind of fatigue with RA? My other question is does anyone have tendonitis in both hands? I was wondering if this is related to the RA or just something else that's going on?
