I have had arthritis my entire life, and in the last few weeks have developed something sorta new....

I was diagnosed with RA a month ago after pain starting in my feet amd migrating very very quickly to other places. The RF level of 1400 and CCP of 275 had my Primary care sending me to a rheumatologist. I had one visit that consisted of background info...xrays and a ton of additional paperwork. I don't see her again for another couple of weeks. My research hasn't been able to determine how high these levels are...would be very interested on any of your experiences. Thanks
