Seem to have a lot of questions going round my head at the moment. Been waiting for a rheumatology appointment for 13 weeks so far which is giving me too much time to think!! After 3 years of joint pain and fatigue and constantly getting a negative rheumatoid factor blood test result, on my last big flare up in Feb the bloods came back as positive for rheumatoid factor with my GP. Although certain joints are now permanently painful most swelling has gone down. I am worried that when the appointment for the consultant finally comes through my rheumatoid factor will be negative again? Any experiences or thoughts would be greatly welcomed. Going stir crazy just waiting for this appointment. Thanks for reading x
