In Reply to: is it RA??? posted by Kathie on October 07, 1999 at 22:26:42:
: I was wondering if anyone else out there has RA but not showing up in any of the blood tests. All of my husbands tests are neg. but his Dr. still says it is RA. Could it be something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
It could be Psoriatic arthritis. PA often resembles RA, and sometimes the psoriatis doesn't show up for years later. Both are treated in the same manner.
