: : : This complaint is the same as Rheumatoid Arthritis but the blood tests are negative.

: Andy from the UK I have read your contribution and as you seem to be one of the few UK contributors I would be interested in your treatments. I am supposed to be on Methrotrexate but cannot tolerate it physically or psychologically it makes me sick! I am presently struggling just on Voltarol which is messing up my gastric system. What has been your experience and do you have any suggestions. Many thanks.

:Andy & Caroline, I have Dupytrans contracture and in the investigations as to the cause it has been found that I have seronegative RA. At the moment I am still being referred to specialists so I am only a short way down the line. I would find it very helpful to have any comments / expectations you can pass on.Regards Peter.
