I have been stiff for several years, in pain for the last couple, and severe bouts of exhaustion. I was diagnosed by the first doctor I saw about a year ago. After gallium scan and 14 tubes of blood. I wasn't find of my rheumy, so I decided to try another one. The be one listens better, but ordered a few tests, and all came back negative. He thinks I had parvovirus, which caused all of my other tests to be false positives. I'm still having all of the symptoms as before, and more.
Usually there is a number that tells you how severe it is. Normal score for a RA test should be less than 14. Mine was 638 when I was first diagnosed. Now, 13 years later, it hovers around 50. Ask your rheumy when you see him/her next. You should have also gotten a score on the Vectra. I just got mine back and it was 32. It had doubled since I had the test done two years ago. Anything less than 20 is good.
I don't know. My paperwork just says positive
