i have ra and my 1st symptoms which i ignored were a burning sensation in the feet. ra usually attacks the smallest joints first ie: the toes and the action causes a burning sensation. now in my case as i ignored all this for 2 years i have probs in my legs and hands as well. tell your doc you suspect it and get the blood test.if you catch it early it can be stopped in its tracks.good luck.

My legs hurt also but the intermitent hot flashes in the legs and the tight muscles proved to be BLOOD CLOTS. The blood clots moved from my legs to my lungs and I almost died before they were detected. Get to a doctor quickly please and tell him to check for blood clots in your legs.

I think you really need to be evaluated by a RA Doctor --- Then you'll know.
THe problem is it could be sveral disorders that need looking at???
