i have had fibro for years,and started seeing a rhuemy in feburary, i have not been truly diagnosed as RA, but she is treating me like i have Ra, i just started on methetrexate,injections, this is all new to me, i went to a dermatologist, because i have this rash on my lower back and butt, and i thought it was just burned from the heating pad, but the dermatologist sent me to the rhuemy she said it was not from the heating pad, it was vasculitis, my blood doesn't show RA but that is how she is treating me because she doesn't know what i have, she said that out of the 800 Ra patients that she sees, she has only seen this rash one other time, and could never properly diagnose them, this is really scarey to me, as well as taking the injections are. would appreciate some friends, that have experience with all of this.
