I have symetrical joint involvement, swollen joints, but no raised inflamation markers. I do have connective tissue disease (overlapping lupus and scleroderma with hashimoto's thyroid disease). I see my rheumie next week and plan on on asking her to order xrays of my hands and wrists as they seem to be the worst. She seems to be stuck on RA altho she hasn't checked for RA factor in 2 yrs.; not too concerned with treating OA.
Thanks much for your help.
