Subject: Rheumatoid Factor - 454 - any advice please.

Hi there. I called my GP as I was experiencing pain in my knuckles some nodules and general aching. I had several bloodtests. All came back ok except for the RF as above, which I understand is very high. I was referrred to a consultant who on examination said that my swelling and nodules looked consistant with Osteo arthritis.

I have a lot of auto-immune conditions in my immediate family including, type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, underactive thyroid and my maternal aunt has RA.

The consultant has taken some x-rays of my hands, and some further bloods.

If this isn't RA, any ideas what it could be?

Did anyone else not have the text book syptoms of RA and still have a diagnosis?

Hi Claire,
I suffer with joint pain in all of my finger joints. I had an ultra sound done and I have a combination of RA and OA.
It can be a while before you will get an answer. There are so many different tests along the way. I guess you are still waiting for the xray and blood test results.
If it is not RA then it probably will be OA.
I hope you get some answers soon.
Take care.
I hope someone else may have some more ideas for you on the forum.

Hi Claire, It's good that you are getting other tests and hopefully that will throw more light on what's going on. I have heard that there are over 200 different types of arthritis although OA and RA are the most common. You can have the RF and not have RA, other things can cause it.
keep in touch and let us know how you get on x

Hi Claire,

I just want to share my story. My name is Jillie, suffered from chronic arthritis both of my hips and both of my wrist and the lower part of my back for over 7 years.
I have tried many main streams medicine and many alternative medicines. But nothing has helped and I have pain in constant pain for over 7 years. 2 months ago, my life changed and my pain was taken away. By using a natural plant-based medicine. I was very skeptical prior to trying this medicine but thank god I did because I started feeling pain relief after 2 hours. And following the course as I was instructed to, I have noticed over the last 2 months each area of my body that was in pain is now pain free.
My moods have never been as good as they are now and I am sleeping better than I ever had. I really want to spread the word as I know there are millions of people suffering just like I was who just like me tried every form of medication. And none of them work. This stuff definitely works, I now have my daughter who also unfortunately suffers from arthritis and sciatica taking the medicine and she is now able to pick up her young son again which she has not been able to do for the last 2 years. I totally understand how this may sound like a sales pitch but all I want to do is spread the word and donāt take my word for it. Please try out yourself and if I am lying, I am dying.

This is the email address where we purchase the medicine (info@bestricksimpsonoil.co.uk)

hi Claire
I am positive for RA & 25 years ago my RF was about 450 , its not good to have high RF , if you have joint problems , red & hot joints are all signs of RA & with raised RF hints at RA

the results means very little but those with high RF can have more risk of servere RA , the drugs are alot better now & hope they can control it but dont mess with the drugs & wish you good luck

Hi Jillie,you haven't told us what this amazing treatment is. You say it is plant based. I think you might be on a sales patter.
If it works for you great. Sceptical about the whole post.
