Can You Describe Your First Flare? Was There Swelling?

Can You Describe Your First Flare? Was There Swelling?

My bloods have come back negative for RF and CCB but I am experiencing major joint pain in my hands, wrists, ankles... and body aches. Extremely tired. Have a rheumatologist app in 3 months!

With RA each person is a little different. I also have lupus with RA. Was so tired lack of energy, and body aches low temp. I WAS 36 WHEN DIAGNOSED. I have been on Humera oh boy nerve problems with temmers, than Embril loved it took for 2 years than stopped working. Took remicade ya wonderful for 7 months than caused major side effect stroke like. Took 1 year to start talking right. Than tried Rotuxin. Went into anaphylaxis just about died....be careful when taking biologics meds and always talk to dr.

First you are not crazy. Your symptoms are real and not all in your head. I am also rf negative . Unfortunately it sounds like an autoimmune disease of some kind. There are over 100. Most respond to the commonly prescribed medications.

I ma currently being evaluated and my labs are negative. I have all of the same symptoms you listed. My referral has not gone through to see the Rheumatologist and I am trying to manage with the supplements suggested by my naturopath. Has anyone seen improvement using collagen? I am also taking fish oil, B 12 shots, Tumeric, and a supplement calle ArthroSoothe.
