Hi all, I am looking for a bit of info for a friend and wondered if any of you could help? A work colleague of mine is convinced he has RA but is finding getting a diagnosis very difficult. He has fatigue, pain in his joints, mainly hand and elbows and has to go home to bed at the end of his working day he is so tired and in so much pain. Up to now his blood results have all been normal but he now has a raised ESR, but normal rheumatoid factor and CRP. None of the doctors he has seen so far will give him a diagnosis of anything and he just lives on pain killers as they will not treat. This is a very different experience to my RA journey so I am finding it difficult to advise him what to do to get answers. Has anyone out there had a similar experience?
