I have belonged to this forum for about 4 weeks and my concerns are increasing daily because I don't understand what the termology is on here and how do I know if I'm receiving the correct/best treatment? I have never had any discussion on my blood results; I don't even know why I give blood or what they do with it. I have no idea what the following means or if I should be having it - RF, ESR, CRP, RTX infusion, depo injection, PsA, DAS score, dmards plus many more. I don't know how severe my RA is, no idea about what treatment is best etc.. I'm becoming depressed because I'm just not clued up and I should be. Any suggestions?
