I saw the rheumatologist for the first time on Tuesday. He ordered lots of blood work and xrays of my hands and feet. Even though I was quite vocal about my pain all he did med-wise was increase the Celebrex my PCP had put me on from 200 mg per day to 400 MG. It has done nothing! I can see my results on the patient portal, most of which I don't understand. I can tell the ANA is positive, Anti-nuclear AB titer is 1:80. My pain wakes me at night, and is so severe in my knees and ankles that I hobble more than walk. Any suggestions as to what I should do now?
