My blood test results came back and I’m clear of arthritis! So now just awaiting my X-Rays
Sorry to those with arthritis I don’t know what it’s like but my Nan has it and it looks really bad
Sorry to brag (I’ll keep u updated )

That's great news. Just remember that osteoarthritis doesn't show up on bloodwork, so you could possibly still have it. Hopefully your x-rays come back clear too.

Yes hopefully they come back clear!
But then I also want them to show something up so I can actually have treatment so it can get better beacuase it is getting worse (I know that sounds bad but hopefully you get my point.

Great news. They probably tested you for RA. The only way to test for osteoarthritis is xray. Osteoarthritis is what most people call arthritis. Hopefully your xrays Are clear too.

Painat12,
I completely understand wanting the x-rays to show something so that you can get answers and treatments. I'm in the same position of fighting to get a diagnosis and treatment.

That is great news! I also agree with AnimalLover2 they usually check bloodwork for RA! Please keep us posted and I hope you find out what's wrong! Good Luck!
