Dr is testing me for RA but im not convinced i have it

Posted , 10 users are following.

I have been back and forwards to Dr for years with complaints of sciatica. the base of my spine and hips are extremely painful at times. It has gradually been getting worse and travelling down my legs, it feels like what i imagine growing pains felt like as a child, but now i am getting the same pains in my shoulders, arms, elbows and hands. Doctor has took bloods to test for RA. I have no swelling, redness, the affected area is not painful to touch, i have no disfigurement. Can anyone tell me if they have had similar symptoms that have turned a positive result for RA.

Im a 30 year old female with 3 children (thats when sciatica type pain started in legs, during pregnancy)

    Got a letter from my doctors today, it said

    'we now have the results back from your recent blood test, please make an appointment to discuss results with your doctor'

    Appointment isn't until 10th may but I'm hoping to get an emergency appointment tomorrow as I need some pain killers.

    Here is a concoction that will reverse your symptoms of pain and inflammation and change your life. 1 tablespoon of organic cocunut oil. Then drink 12-18oz of water mixed with 1tbsp of organic honey, 1tsp turmeric and 1/2tsp of black pepper and a half of organic lemon. Drink this 2-3 times a day preferably on an empty stomach for a couple of weeks and you will be a new person.
