I was at the rheumy clinic today & they are querying if I do have RA or just severe inflammatory arthrits, this is because after several months of MTX I haven't improved & my blood results don't show any inflammation.
I'm not sure if I am happy or sad at this possible diagnosis. At least with RA there is scope for improvement with treatment whereas I'm not sure there is with severe OA.
I trust my consultant (Prof Arden) as he is a renowned authority on arthritis.
I've already had one knee replacement & am waiting to have the other one done in the next couple of months.
I've got to have a hand scan; I had xrays & bloods done today & then go back for results.
