    Has anyone experienced weight loss due to rheumatoid arthritis? I have lost about a stone in the last 3 years ,since diagnosed I have had blood tests via GP and rheumatologist but can’t explain why.

    I take 12.5 methotrexate injection once a week. I am so tired all the time lately.

    Of course, weight loss with such a diagnosis is quite normal, you will not lose more weight than it may seem, so don't worry too much, just watch your diet

    I’ve faced the same problem lately. The loss of appetite Is one of the symptoms of this disease. At first, I was happy to lose a few kilograms because I had never been skinny. However, now I miss the times I was thicker. I managed to lose some weight before discovering I had rheumatoid arthritis with the help of the orlandomagazine strategy. I already liked my shape after that weight loss, but now I’m skin and bones, which is unattractive. I can’t help but lose even more weight, and I can’t eat when dealing with pain
