Hi all, i have just joined the group so please excuse me if if waffle on a bit, I went to the doctors 3 weeks ago as i had found a couple of bald patches on my head. I have also been having bad joint pain in my feet, ankles, wrists and fingers. He diagnosed me with alopecia and sent me for blood tests. My blood tests all came back negative except for ANA which was 160. He has referred me to the Rheumatologist. My sister has severe RA which she has had since she was 16 and is now 50. My mum has it and some of my mums brothers and sisters have it. Has anyone been diagnosed with just a high ANR and painful joints but negative rheumatoid factor. Does anyone else have alopcecia with RA. ? Dont know how long i will have to wait for an appointment. Thanks for any help.
