I initially went to my PCP for body aches and fatigue x2 weeks. Had lab work which came back positive for Anti CCP of 55.. negative RF, negative ESR, CRP.
Saw Rheumatology who basically said I have a 50/50 chance of getting RA and that I "shouldn't worry about it right now."
Side note: hurt my thumb and placed on Mobic and feel much better...stopped Mobic and my body aches came back so the rheumatologist put me on Mobic for 2 months and then follow up with him.
I just feel uneasy that he didn't seem too concerned. All the newer literature states that a positive Anti-CCP is very indicative of developing RA and I seem to have some early onset symptoms.
I'm only 34F so I feel like I'd like to be ambitious with it If it's probably going to turn out to be RA.
Has anyone dealt with this kind of approach or have you been more aggressive?
thank you in advance.
