I saw my rheumatologist yesterday, and he confirmed I have RA. He told me I have a less severe form called seronegative RA. I have all the physical signs of RA, but the only elevated blood marker was inflammation. He also said my reaction to the steroids were consistent with how RA responds to steroids. He is starting me on 1 injection of methotrexate for 6 weeks, then I go back for labs, and drug increase if needed. Said I probably wouldn't see a difference for about 6 weeks. He also said that at some point I could become seropositive, or I could go into remission, but he has good results with the methotrexate. The possibility of feeling normal again is exciting!!!!!
