From this study (2 weeks ago):
I've been diagnosed with sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis. I have only tested minimally positive on the anti-CCP test and had a slightly high SED rate. My most recent tests showed some slight elevation in some RA marker tests, but nothing really significant. My rheumatologist is now doubting whether I have RA or some other pain syndrome going on.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Taking xarelto after knee surgery yesterday. Foot is now swollen on that leg and would like to know if I can take the bumetanide while taking xarelto.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
elevated procalcitonin >9.0! Can this be due to rapamune and/or prograf?
