I wanted to ask your advice as I am feeling a bit topsy turvy in this whole journey of getting a diagnosis and hoping you will at least be able to add some clarity.
So I have had all the blood test results back and everything is normal so the Rheumatologist sent letter back saying I have Polyarthalgia and probably Chronic fatigue. Trying to make sense of it all I went to see the GP who agreed that negative bloods means I don't have inflamatory arthritis but OA which can be inflamatory and so can have travelled from hips to hands and feet. OK I thought fair enough I am going to accept this diagnosis and get on with life.
But I've just been to the Ultra sound scan of hands and feet and although my hands look normal my feet do show synovial changes and the radiologist will write to the Rheumatologist.
I have become so confused looking online at what seronegative means. I've read that 30% of people are seronegative and have inflamtory joint disease... maybe it's not strictly RA but another strand? Ah sorry I don't even know what my question or point is anymore.
Thanks if you've read it all
