Sounds like it's time to find another rheumy.
Your doctor is saying you have RA, it's just seronegative. And RA is all about inflammation. You should talk to your rheumy about other drugs that might be helpful, including biologics. The whole idea is to slow down the damage the disease can do. Are you concerned that your doctor is not taking your condition seriously? If so, talk to him/her frankly about your concerns. Get another opinion or find a better fit. It is very important to have a good relationship with your rheumy. You're in it for the long haul.
