Does Anyone Else Have No Swelling Or Morning Stiffness? I’m Beginning To Wonder If This RA Or Not!

Does Anyone Else Have No Swelling Or Morning Stiffness? I’m Beginning To Wonder If This RA Or Not!

All my bloods are negative also but still have pains in hands and feet!

I have had RA for 30+ years. After some aggressive treatment I was in remission for at least 20 of those years with no symptoms at all. Then I had a flare -up 10 years ago which was brought under control fairly easily. However, two years ago had another flare-up and have been trying to get it under control for some time. This disease is so unpredictable where during a flare-up one joint in your foot will swell and be in incredible pain and your other foot will be perfect. I was also told to do what ever you can not to let a flare up happen as you many not be able to get it under control.

Morings are the worse. Once I begin moving around, it gets better.

I no longer test positive for RA. But, I am symptomatic. Dr explained there's a 25-30% group that has RA without testing positive for the markers. It's diagnosed based on symptions and physical exam.

Another note to mention: Other diseases can be misdiagnosed as RA. One for example is Lyme Disease.
