I was tested for Rheumatoid factor and it came out positive a few years ago and then I was retested a month or so later and it was negative. My primary said this means I don't have RA. But can it go positive and then negative if you have RA or is it always positive? I forgot to bring this up with the rheumy, brain not working well these days.
