Question: Can rheumatoid arthritis pain follow my menstrual cycle? I have rheumatoid arthritis and celiac disease. I've noticed the joint pain is so much worse right before my menstrual cycle. Has anyone else experienced this? I assume it's from the changing hormone levels. I have little to no pain during the rest of the month. My doctor says there should be no relation, but it occurs every month like clockwork. He's referring me to a rheumatologist, but I still think there is a link here.

Answer: Yes,you are right,not only hormone levels,but also chemical stimulate levels.
