I am currently awaiting appointment to see a Rheumatology Consultant as my GP considers that my symptoms and blood results point to RA. (I have already been diagnosed with OA in my hip and neck/shoulder area). The suspected RA is affecting my hands and feet. At a recent GP appointment I was advised that blood results showed a high Anti CCP Antibody and my GP had therefore requested an urgent appointment at the Rheumatology Clinic. We did not discuss any details about the reading of the ACCP but when I got home I looked at my on-line medical records and test results. I discovered that my reading was 77.2. Not having heard of the ACCP previously, I spent a fair amount of time reading up on it and I have to say that it has left me feeling very alarmed and worried. Although I am pretty well acquainted with the subject of OA, I am something of a novice when it comes to RA, although I seem to be experiencing a steep learning curve! I would be really grateful if any members of the forum have any comments/experiences relating to this which they would share, as I do not know anyone who is experiencing RA. Thank you.
