I am so frustrated. Wake up with several fingers that will not move and clear joint swelling and heat in hands. Ankle pain and joint swelling for 18 months now. Rheumatologists has been treating it as RAy for 2.5 mos (methotrexate then switched to sulfasalazine two weeks ago plus daily prednisone). I'm in serious pain. I do not see her again until September 5 but I just got bilateral hand MRI (w/o contrast) results on online portal that say "unremarkable hand MRI" on both sides except for one note on right hand: "Soft tissues: Small fluid collection along the volar aspect of the carpal bones favored to
represent fluid pisotriquetral joint recess versus ganglion cyst." right hand MRI conclusion still "unremarkable." I am so incredibly frustrated. Has anyone had a normal MRI? If not RA, what?
