Fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) often overlap, so it can be difficult to tell which condition is causing a patient’s pain. One difference is that fibromyalgia doesn’t cause joint swelling. Still, it is always going to be hard to differentiate.

It poses interesting questions and problems for those who suffer both fibromyalgia and RA.
