Anon_18407 I was just reading your post and I thought I wrote it. I was diagnosed with RA one yr ago I had those identical symptoms and still do.I changed rheumatologikst last month and this Dr actually says my test were negative for RA. Im baffled I see her again on Monday I am going to ask her to retest me and I am asking her that specific question how can I test positive then negative but have all the signs and symptoms of RA. Plus the other Dr. had me taking meds for the disease for a yr.I have these pea and marble sized firm nodules under my skin on my knucles,forearms and elbows that are also symptoms.My activities are almost void somedays especially if its cold or cold and damp I can barely move.I understand your need to scream help.When I get answers I will be sure to post them.View Thread
