I have Rheumatoid Arthritis for 2 years. Lately I have been getting a sharp pain in my stomach on the left side by my lower ribs just above my waist. It is also tender to the touch. I am worried also about my organs because of the medicaton that I am on.(MTX,Prednisone,Arthrotec) Can I have rheumatoid arthritis in my ribs?
RA does not effect the ribs. The ribs are not a joint. I think stomach problems is the most likely cause of your pain but your doctor needs to check it out.
