I've been on the road to diagnosis for RA since early 2021 and I feel like doctors don't believe me when I tell them how much pain I'm in constantly. I'm really good at working through my pain. I mean I've had 2 kids and barely broke a sweat. but my joints... it gets so bad sometimes that I just sit and cry. idk what to do. the only doctor I had that listened and believed me isn't practicing anymore

      If you have swelling, get before and after pictures of it. Having pics helped my doctors listen to me and get me the right treatment

      Tell them you'd like a blood test for arthritis factors and if they refuse ask them to write down that they refused and why in your chart

        @Aaronb03 I can totally empathize with you, my Dr thankfully listened to me but I can't start treatment yet, and the pain im in some days, especially after work, is miserable

          @Aaronb03 I've had so many blood tests done and the only thing they keep finding is my inflammation levels are high. And they always tell me to just take ibuprofen even though I keep telling them I'm allergic to it.
