After having a bout of viral arthritis which never really ‘clear up’ my GP sent me to get my bloods done to get for rheumatoid factor and a couple of other inflammatory markers (forgive me I can’t remember what they were called)
Anyway, my results have been ‘lost in transit’ so had to have them redone.
But in the meantime, I wonder if you very helpful people could tell me what your main systems were?
I ask as I do have the swelling, pain and stiffness in my hands and wrists, but also in my knees. My GP is telling it is unlikely to be RA if I am experiencing symptoms in my knees....... but reading your posts it doesn’t seem that RA is too choosy which joints it attacts!
