Hi there. At the doctor I told her I had lower back/upper butt pain and then pain that went down both sides of my outer thighs which I thought was siatica. Also the outside party of my left thigh is numb and a little bit on the right thigh. She did blood work and some nonchalant nurse called me and said "you tested positive for RA so go see a rhomatologist. I was taken back. Does that mean it's definite? I mean there's also an exact name for the numbing outer thighs (can't remember right now) but it is in correlation to siatica. Thanks for your help.
