Has anyone had a vectra d blood test ordered? My rheumatologist loves this test especially for RA. I have seronegative ra and chronic pain. He thought my suffering right now is from the chronic pain. My results came back. Everything was normal except for a low red blood count. My vectra d results said normal range then said high. My rheumatologist is out of town having surgery and has not called to go over the results. The pain has been bad especially with the rain and humidity. Has anyone had high results from this test? Does it mean my pain right now is from the ra? I am on plaquenil and leufonimide as well as amitriptyline. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Lisa, I have not seen anyone recently post about the Vectra D test. From what I understand it is used to test disease activity in patients on DMARDS & biologics. Another tool in the toolbox for RA patients. Let us know what your dr says once you get your results back.

Thanks Susie. My rheumatologist is out having surgery. They told me 2 weeks until he may be able to read the results and get back to me. From what I have been reading, my results show high disease activity, which would explain how much pain I am in. The waiting is always the hardest part.
