    fiveboyfoy:

    I hope you do not have RA. I had to take a test for it and it was, as far as I know, negative.

    I know how rough it is to have dx that are not normal.

    It certainly would be good to have some blood work done.

    At least then you can take action!

    And yes: Merry Christmas, may it be wonderful for you.

    Is the pain in your joints? My mom has RA and the pain and swelling affects her joints. If you are having more of an achy, flu-like feeling, it is probably your CFS and/or fibro. I have CFS and have flu-like, achy pain - even bony-like pain, not to mention chronic, daily migraine.

    My RA has always come out negative, although I just asked for another one the last time I saw the doctor. I haven't gotten the results as of yet.

    Good luck!
