Saw rheumatologist

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, i posted a few weeks ago about having a positive rf and strong positive on my ccp tests. Rheumatologist sees no signs of disease... at least for now. Could have activity im a month or never. I will go back in 6 months for another exam an labs. Just want to say that in the 3 weeks I have waited for this appt I have learned so much about this disease. I thank all of you that replied to my posts. No matter what I will always be an advocate for more resesrch into this disease and will look for opportunities to help the RA community anyway O can. Thank you.

    May I ask, why did you have the tests done, do you have pain or swelling anywhere that prompted you?

      I originally had puffy hands in the morning that seemed to keep happening over a few weeks. He does not think my morning puffy hands is RA. He said my bloodwork is significant but is not going to have me take meds until I present real symptoms ie swollen joints etc. I get all over puffy and swollem i think its a circulation issue.
