I have had 6 different specialist. 4 of them say I have RA, the other 2 "don't think so". I have had the usual work up, X-rays, body scans, and blood work. The blood test that most of them were going by, was the for Immunology Studies. "ANA screen" 0.46, "RF Screen", Positive, and the RF Titer Test, "80". So Between the physicial exams, surgeries, and knowing I was Epileptic also, (for the past 30 years), they were still hesitant to say whether it was Osteoartheritis, or RA. I have been to a Rheumatoidologist too. He "believes" after all this it is OA, but not 100% sure!!!! Any Suggestions would be so very helpful. Thank you, Debbie in Fort Wayne,IN
