  • 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 (1 month ago):

  • Recurring extreme pain in joint of big toe. Lasts for 2 to three days, then subsides. Had lab work done and was told that my uric acid level was below level that would cause any gout symptoms. I have had two painful flare ups over the past two months, about 3 weeks apart.
