Hello, I have been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease and with my last Rheumy appt, he said I was borderline for RA. He said not to freak out yet, but I have been suffering for about six years with chronic pain and it only gets worse over time. So far the DJD and Fibromyalgia are the two dianoses, but I feel like there has to be something else going on. My RA Factor is only at 31 which is 1 point higher than someone without, so it's VERY borderline, but I am in a lot of pain all teh time. Pretty much everything from the neck down. Joints, muscles, everything! Probably connective tissue too. I just need answers, so any advice you have about your own experiences or just advice would be great. He also said that if I stop taking my anti-inflammatory, it could progress, but they also said I might have some stomach bleeding from it, but it was okay to keep taking it. Just can't wait to get answers from anyone. Thanks y'all!
