So the results of my nuclear joint scan are in. And just like every test I have had done it was negative. According to the doctor a lack of activity on this scan indicates that I do not have active rheumatoid arthritis, therefor I have gone into remission. This is surprising to me as the overall remission rate (using the ACR definition of remission) is 8.6% which leaves most RA patients with incredibly low odds. I am not and have never been a lucky person so I am hesitant to list myself under that 8.6% however this doctor said that if these scans came back clean [still waiting on MRI results] that he saw no need to follow up with me but suggested I continue my RA treatments. However making the assumption that I am in fact in remission but still experiencing this level of pain and fatigue adds merit to his diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, in a way the lack of proof is proof. I will hopefully know more after meeting with the Fibromyalgia specialist on Monday. They will be deciding if I am a good candidate for their comprehensive pain rehab program, I really hope they decide to se me as I have stopped all pain medication per the Mayo rheumatologists request. So my pain level is a little higher than I would like it to be but hopefully there is something that can be done for it.
