    All of my tests, including ANA were negative. My diagnosis was based on symptomology and damage. Once the Vectra DA test came out, I finally showed RA.

    Hi CLURTT! Most rheumatologists use a number of diagnostic tools to reach a diagnosis of RA and may not base it solely on ANA results. While you may already be familiar with these tests, I thought I would share this link to the tests physicians use to diagnose RA — https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/diagnosis/laboratory-testing/. I hope this helps and that you also get some feedback from our community members as well. Best, Erin, RheumatoidArthritis.net Team Member.
