My husband was diagnosed with RA 3 years ago. He has since had 2 total knee replacements and healed well.
He did go back to work a little too soon though.

A big problem he is having is a painful swollen ankle.
He takes no medication except Advil or Tylenol Ones. He did a course of Mexotrexate but found the side effects out weighed him taking it anymore.

Any clue what could be causing this pain and swelling?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
