Rheumatoid Arthritis of the Shoulder: Signs and Symptoms Print E-mail

Since rheumatoid arthritis of the shoulder is usually a symmetrical disease, both shoulders may be affected. The most common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis of the shoulder is a stiff or "frozen" shoulder. However, shoulder stiffness can also be a symptom of other causes including athletic injury, ankylosing spondylitis and tendinitis.

Other common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis of the shoulder include:

  • Swelling and pain in one or more joints, lasting six weeks or more
  • Fatigue and/or weakness
  • Shoulder stiffness following periods of immobility which gradually improves with movement
  • General sickness, mild fevers, anemia and weight loss Only a physician can make a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.

If you think you have any of these symptoms, please consult with your doctor.
