Hey everyone, my Mom, who is 55 and has always been in excellent health (she works on scaffolding, can run for miles, etc) has been dealing with pleurisy, and recently has gotten a knot under her collar bone that is painful and swollen. Her regular doc did blood work and her ANA was positive and her rheumatoid factor was 31.4. They told her she has rheumatoid and made her an appointment with a Rheumatologist. She has not had much joint pain, most of it can be associated with over use. I was just wondering if anyone else presented for RA in any way other than the characteristic joint pain or if anyone else has had pleurisy associated with RA. Thanks guys, April
