Inflammatory Arthritis

Hi. I've been diagnosed with Inflammatory Arthritis. All blood work is normal, but have swelling in joints; ultrasound showed something about the synovial fluid hence the inflammatory arthritis diagnosis. Dr. suspects seronegative RA. I'm moved up to 400 mg plaquenil daily and 25 mg methotrexate weekly. I still feel bad. Is it normal to feel achy all over, fatigue, and just poorly (almost like a flu)? Also my hands stay red, especially palms. Knuckle joints red too. Today received discouraging news about cognitive functioning from tests. Is all of this part of the disease process?

Re: Inflammatory Arthritis

Have you talked to your doctor about the RA? They can test for the factor to make a better diagnosis and for your hands being red all the time, need to ask the doctor. Always be proactive about your health questions. Doctors love to talk to patients who want to be in the know. Please ask your doctor about the hands. Good luck and hugs for today.

Never give up.
