Re: bloods.

Your symptoms are important in conjunction with the labs. If you have joint pains and stiffness, especially in your hands or feet, I would ask for xrays. Erosions of the joints are diagnostic of RA. A year is long enough to warrant a repeat visit to the rheum if you have developed symptoms over the past year, for re-evaluation.
