I was diagnosed with severe RA in December 2015, I have been seeing a rheumatologist and I am wondering if what he doing or not doing is normal. I am on methrotrexate, planquenil, steroids and will have my 4th remicade infusion in 2 weeks. It seems like I am getting worse instead of better. My left middle finger is twice the size and curled and am having daily pain everywhere. I now have 5 RA nodes and all of this got worse when I started these treatments. Does this happen sometimes, are these flare ups or should my rheumatologist be looking into either upping my dose or changing my medicine? When I let him know what was going on, he just said thank you for letting him know. I am thinking of changing my doctor because it doesn't seem like he is doing anything. When I ask him questions he gets mad. Have I not given all this medication enough time or is it just him not doing anything. Sorry this is so long, just not sure what to do.
