Hello everyone not been on for sometime but now need a moan and some of your thoughts.
Just cone back from seeing new RA consultant, he as asked for an MRI scan of my hands to check for inflammatory disease, he thinks not as I don't have any swelling or redness which never have had even on initial diagnosis which was seropositive RA. My blood test show normal ranges and the rheumatiod marker is low at 24 although higher then when I was diagnosed.
I asked him if I had been misdiagnosed and he said not necessarily (but he would wouldn't he). He then went on to say there are different types of arthritis, the one that wears away that causes aches and pains as you get older(his words not mine) I am only 54.
Kicked in the teeth or what. I have been on triple therapy for 6 months and feel wose than when I started. I have pains in shoulders, knees, ankles, feet, elbows and hands, can't believe its OA., been on all these toxic drugs been up and down and my husband has been a brick.
All your thoughts will be welcome xx
