My wife just got diagnosed with RA. She has high ACPA and high RF. Her symptoms started with pain under her left foot for a couple of weeks and in less than without two months it spread to her right ankle bilateral knees and left shoulder. The swelling is getting worse and so is the pain.
Is it what we call a “flare” or this is how her disease will be because her high ACPA and RF.
We have an appointment with rheumatologist next week but the worsening of her symptoms is concerning me a lot.
