I saw an article that listed all the labs which you can check even if you are seronegative
He pretty much let me know that my RA shouldn't limit me from working. My inflammation count was really high in the last part of 2018. And that is the reason Humira was added. I had the flu in Jan. And had to go off medicines which caused a flare-up. I fight this battle all the time because I also have COPD.
I was diagnosed with RA in 2012. I have worked the same job for 22 years. I went to my Rheumotologist yesterday to get a cortisone shot in my foot. I am currently out of work for 6 weeks (primary doctor) wrote me out due to my pain, fatigue from RA. I asked him if I don't get better what will I do. He looked at me like I was crazy. He said all I can tell anyone is you have RA. Therr is not a part of the body that limits you to not work. I am currently taken Rasuvo (methotrexate) shots and Humira. Only been on Humira since Dec. 2018. Also take Ibuprofen, Predisone, Flexiril and Gabapentin for nerve damage that I just started to experience due to RA.
