Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Previously, it needs to be clarified, what examinations have you undergone so that you are declared to have rheumatism? Did the doctor make the diagnosis?
Rheumatism (rheumatoid arthritis) is a chronic inflammation of the joints that occurs due to autoimmune disorders. This condition can cause joints to feel painful, warm, swollen, and stiff. Often too, due to rheumatism, sufferers will experience difficulty moving, fever, difficulty sleeping, weight loss, fatigue, and various other complaints. The diagnosis of rheumatism, apart from interviews and physical examinations, is also established through blood and radiological examinations (eg x-rays, ultrasound, or MRI). Have you ever undergone a series of examinations above?
If not, then what you are experiencing is not necessarily caused by rheumatism. Pain in the upper arm and shoulder can occur due to the effects of previous injuries, for example due to joint dislocation, fractures, tendinitis, pinched nerves, osteomyelitis (bone infection), and so on. If this pain appears accompanied by a lump, this pain can also appear due to other causes, for example:
Infections, such as cellulitis, Herpes zoster (chickenpox), folliculitis (hair root infection), lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes) Joint dislocation Tumors, etc. It is best if you check your complaints directly to the doctor considering that the complaints have been going on for months . That way, handling can be done right on target.
To overcome the pain you feel, you can temporarily use a warm compress. You can also take pain relievers, such as paracetamol. Do not press or massage the lump that appears forcibly. And first rest your arm from excessive activity, such as lifting or pulling heavy objects.
Hope it helps ya..
