PS @A myRAteam Member. ...and I should have added that being Sero Neg. is why so many of us who "are" SNeg, have had such a struggle finding a Doctor who connects the dots and refers us to a Rheumatologist for diagnosis. About 30% of RA patients are "SeroNegative"!!
Sero Negative RA IS regular RA, but you are diagnosed clinically, because the sed rate, RA factor and other "markers" in your bloodwork are not there for the lab to count. That's why it's called negative. You still have it, your bloodwork just doesn't have the positive markers to count. Hope this helps. 🌹@ Lin
it is crazy isn't it? I guess we have to trust our group of docs, nice to have a group to share questions and experiences with!
