Question about RA
« on: October 05, 2008, 11:25:17 PM »
I have had knee pain for 8 going on 9 years. (i know that RA doesnt affect larger joints like the knee)

recently, my elbow and my right fingers and wrist were starting to become really stiff and sore. I went to the doc for a sports physical, and my mom asked her to take blood for an arthritis panel. the tests for arthritis and RA, both came back negative, but my fingers are still really stiff and sore. It makes it hard to write in school, especially cuz im in high school and we take many notes. is there a possibility that the tests can be a false negative? and my wrists are starting to hurt.

thanks so much
(i moved this topic from the rheumatoid forum cuz no was answering.)
