Hello Flik. Sorry you are feeling so bad. What meds are you taking for pain? The pain in your spine is probably not ra. It doesn't affect the spine, only joints. Has your rhuemy taken blood tests? It took my rhuemy awhile to diagnose my ra because I have a negative rhuematiod factor. She eventually did an MRI which showed positive for RA. The good thing about
the diagnosis is they can give you different medicines. The bad thing about
know is they can give you different medicines. I hope all turns out well for you.
