I've just been to an appointment with a registrar today and was told that from the tests and symptoms so far they can't really say yet what I have. I definitely have osteoarthritis but other pains/stiffness symptoms are not conclusive. If I understood him correctly they seem to be most puzzled by the fact that I hardly ever have any swelling or at least significant swelling with the pain/stiffness and no signs in blood etc of inflammation. The latter could perhaps be to do with me taking ibuprofen everyday. So now I am wondering if anyone else With diagnosed RA has little swelling of joints?
