I finally have an NHS appointment to see a rheumatology consultant on 3rd January, so not too long to wait. What will happen at this first appointment? Blood tests showed that my RF factor was 86 but other levels including inflammation were within normal range. Different parts of my body ache at different times. Yesterday it was my fingers and wrists, tonight its my toes and ankles. My knees play up from time to time and I have had hip problems for quite a few years, although MRI scans indicate I have osteoarthritis in my hips, and also hands. I am not too sure exactly what I am suffering from, so any ideas would be appreciated. I have been taking high dose turmeric, which has really helped the inflammation. Thank you so much!
