Saw rheumy this morning expecting to be put on hydroxy q as sulfasalzine and methotrexate failed, tho steroids work wonderfully!
He has decided that as my inflammatory markers when off the steroids are normal (they always have been as I am seronegative for RA) that I must be free of RA now. He has told me to stop the steroids and come back in three months as any pain I have is probably osteoarthritis in my fingers. When I said I have the pains in my shoulder joints, knees and spine, none of which have been examined or x rayed, he said to wait and see. Have to say i was very fuzzy in the appointment as have a bad cold and could not be bothered to argue but has anyone else seemingly been 'cured' of RA. If so, fantastic.
