Re: Could someone review my tests

Sweetie,
your normal blood tests may show that you don't have RA, mostly likely you don't since symptoms kind of different, but I am not a DR here to diagnose you. But it doesn't mean you dont have OA. Blood tests are normal when people have OA, it doesn't affect our immune system, or blood, but pain may be very bad.
Another thing, some people may still have RA with good blood tests, all depends on how good your doctor is and what his opinion is on your matter. RA is a very hard disease to diagnose and this is why so many people misdiagnosed and get harsh treatments for nothing.

My first surgery, for my OA knee was when I was just 24. My knees since had many surgeries, but at age 24 I was told by my surgeon that first time in 30 years of his practice he saw such bad damages in 24 years old kid.
So see if you can get MRI to see what is going on with your joints.
