I have been in remission for about three years now (no symptoms at all!). I recently lost 47 pounds and since the weight loss I have been experiencing joint pain. I'm having morning stiffness but the pain does not subside throughout the day as I remember it doing in the past (before remission). By the end of the day more joints are effected than when I woke up! I am a preschool teacher and spend most of the day On the floor but I'm having a hard time getting up now! I just find it curious that I started these symptoms after major weight loss... Anyone else have a similar experience?
