Our expert says:
Maureen, a RF of 1:40 is definitely not proof of you having rheumatoid arthritis. It sounds like the Arthrotec® is not agreeing with you and the best would be to change to a different anti-inflammatory like Celebrex® or Vioxx®. You can also ask your GP to refer you to a good rheumatologist although I doubt that it is necessary. Good luck.
