I saw my Rheumy on Tuesday, she was very nice and thorough. She is certain I have RA, but checked other tests just to be certain nothing else is going on. She also x-rayed a lot of my joints checking for erosion, and that would determine how aggressive my meds will need to be.
Luckily, my X-rays only show small bilateral heel spurs. Only part of my lab works as returned and it shows elevated RF, Sed rate and Crp. My free T4 level was low and so was my Vitamin D level. I'm really concerned what the low free T4 means, which I do know that has to do with your pituitary gland. Has anyone else had this issue?
