Hi I have a bad case of Rheumatoid Athritis in my family and have been having joint problems for a few years now. I finally went to see a Rheumatology doctor and she sent me to have labs and x-rays. My recent labs show:
C-Reactive Protein 0.3
CYC Citrulline Pepab 3
Erythrocyte Sed Rate 14
Rheumatoid factor <20
ANA Screen Result Positive 40 Speckled
Iam going to call the doctor tomorrow for the results and to see if I need more testing but it has me worried about what I could have. I have searched several websites and it shows I could have an autoimmune disease and it could fall under several catergories. Does anyone have any knowledge of what this could be??
Could I have the RA but no RF. I am just worried and anxious.
