Since my last dive several years ago, I've developed rheumatoid arthritis.  I was wondering if anybody knew how the pressure affects someone with rheumatoid arthritis.  I figure if atmospheric pressure changes can be felt, the undersea ones would be worse.  Would love to dive again but that is a big concern for me.

I have Psoriatic Arthritis which has the same RA factor. I dive all the time with no issues. In fact I feel better at depth that on the surface.
