I was diagnosed with RA about 1 month ago. At that time my pain was quite bad and joints were swollen. But ESR and CRP were low. after one month of treatment, my pain and swelling are almost gone but ESR and CRP higher than before. Does that mean I'm worse than before or better? What is a better indicator of meds working - bloodwork or symptoms?
