I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this stupidity. I have a primary care doctor and have been with him for 15 years or so. I also have a Rheumatologist . They do not agree on my diagnoses of RA. While this normally would not be a huge issue, my Rheumatologist is leaving town soon and the nearest Rheumatologist is 60 miles away and I may have to depend on my primary doctor in a flare up. My Rheumatologist says it's sero-negative RA ...primary care doc says he thinks I'm just getting old, and that sero-negative RA is extremely rate. He also has a history of not hearing his patients complaints....well "hearing" but not really listening. Thoughts? Opinions? With the sero-negative diagnoses, I have no hard evidence of RA. My primary care doc likes tests and evidence of a diagnoses he can see on paper. I know what my symptoms are and I know that what I've experienced the last few years are NOT typical aging problems.
