Hi, I'm new to this site and having read a lot of the posts, think it's a fabulous resource for people with RA. I've not been diagnosed with RA but am having symptoms which have caused my GP to refer me to a rheumatologist. Unfortunately, in my health area there is currently one rheumie doing the job of three so my wait might be a long one. My RF is positive but the CRP test was normal (I think). Another GP in the practice suggested that a PV test should be done and I'm waiting for that result to come back. My only symptoms are painful toes, a very tender thumb and jaw pain (for which I have been prescribed sustained release ibuprofen because I just couldn't cope in the mornings with the jaw pain). As the day progresses things generally improve. I was really just wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar and know what it might be as it could be some time before I get an appointment.
