RA Or?

RA Or?

I have been tested for RA and it was negative however I have a couple of friends with it and have the same symptoms as they do. Does anyone else feel like they may have misdiagnosed RA or is it just more symptoms of fibro? So frustrating.

If you feel there is something wrong, see a different doctor for a second, third and/or fourth opinion if needed. All "opinions" are the subjective probabilities in the areas of educational and socioeconomic qualities of each and every doctor.

@SherryBensonIve had so many cortisone injections in my back, they refused to believe it wasnt helping. I finally refused to get anymore because its so painful to have done. I kept hanging on to it will help. Has it helped you?

I have never been tested for that. Are we talking about arthritis? I have osteoarthritis, very bad bone health. My back, neck knees, one knee replaced in 2005, the other one needs it, but will never have it replaced,just get cortisone shots in back , knee, and hips.

Did he test your SED rate? If it was negative than this is probably Fibro symptoms.

It took about a year before my Rheumatologist stopped dismissing me for testing negative for RA before he did acknowledge that I truely had RA. He said that if I hadn't stuck with him and kept telling him the symptoms I was having every appointment and continued seeing him, that he would have dropped it. I was tested again a year later and my levels had gone up but still not to the point of testing positive for RA
