My G.P. (who is not a G.P. he's a Physician) his words not mine!! told me on 16th May my blood results are back & confirmed with an RA factor 160
ESR HI 21
Rheumatoid screeninig test 83.7 hi
That I have high scores for RA and will be treated aggressively with MTX. The consultant doesnt seem to agree & wants to treat as Psoriatic arthritis with Hydroxy 400mg daily.Had lots more blood taken for CCP & ESR ,X-Ray on feet etc....Go to see my Doctor tomorrow for advice as she said if I want to wait till blood tests come back , then start my Meds then (as I said to the consultant) I dont think that decision should be mine !!!Very confussed .
Question ...do u get nodules with Psoriatic arthritis
Just want to be sure I'm getting the right treatment from begining As they say with R A the sooner its treated the better.
I'm even more confused & worried now. Any advice. Anne x
