@A myRAteam Member Looking it up it's an anti-inflammatory used to treat osteoarthritis. Looking at the meds that your rheumy just prescribed - one is for inflammation and the other for pain - I'm hoping that you are actually on meds to treat your RA

@A myRAteam Member Hashimoto's is hypothyroidism. So, I'm assuming your encronologist is prescribing Synthroid or something equivalent to regulate your thyroid. That is doing nothing for the RA.
Do you remember what your RA factor was? Normal is less than 14. I just don't understand why your rheumy wants to wait. Seems crazy to me. Why not get you under control early in the disease. Not sure what to tell you. Is this the only rheumy that you can see? You might even talk to your GP or PCP and see what he/she says.

@A myRAteam Member Has he done an RA factor blood test? That's usually a good indicator of having RA. I can't believe he's making you wait to see if you get worse. Most doctors, even GPs when they first diagnose you will get you started on a steroid. An anti-inflammatory and a pain med are doing nothing but treating the symptoms. How long ago were you diagnosed? You should not have to wait another 4 months for treatment.
