Hi everyone! I haven't posted here much as I'm not 'officially' diagnosed with RA - I'm symptomatic and have a family history, but since my RF is negative the doctors won't consider a diagnosis of seronegative RA (I do, however, have another rheumatology referral fixed for November - but I suspect I'll be 'fobbed off' yet again).
Anyway, my question now relates to whether anyone here knows of any possibly useful alternative treatments which I could try - eg. diet, supplements, exercise, physio, acupuncture, etc? The thing I'm struggling most with is the increased swelling and pain in my feet, hands, hips, knees and shoulders. Is there anything which you find useful in alleviating this?
Many thanks. At least this might give me some ideas of things to try ahead of my appointment in November. Getting difficult to cope with all the pain at the moment.
