Hi just had a diagnosis of seronegative ra. I've had pain & tiredness for 40 years( I'm 53) but only when I've really pushed for a diagnosis by going privately, have I finally got a diagnosis. Also got fibromyalgia, OA and APS. I was told by a rheumy 2 years ago that it was "just" fibromyalgia but was told by a brilliant physio that I should keep chasing as it was more than that. Starting methotrexate in a month but just so disappointed that it has taken hundreds of gp appointments to get here. Had a steroid injection yesterday but am actually in more pain. Has that happened to anyone. I don't normally moan so much and am very happy to get a diagnosis lol.
