Hello all. About a month ago I had to see a new Rheumatologist. I moved to a new area and have not been treated.

Four years ago or so I was dx with RA by another Rheumatologist. I brought my xrays and my patient records. My other dr had me on Methotrexate and this one started me on Azulfadine. Big difference.

That was his conservative treatment. I had what is called Seronegative RA.

I do not know if this man thought my last dr was full of crap, if I was full of crap or what.

Now, come to find out my rf is positive and all of a sudden he starts treating me with ARAVA.

I just wonder if it had not been positive, would I still be sitting here in pain.

It has never been positive in all of these years...
