seronegative inflammatory arthritis
Hi, this is my first post on this forum. I've been diagnosed with the above after a very actue attack of arthritis in the summer. Rheumy intitially thought it was viral but it is not settling down and he plans to put me on methotrexate in the new year. I have raised ALT levels (liver enzyme I think) but can't find anything on the net to explain this. My GP wants me to be checked out for hepatitis but other GP doesn't think that is the problem. Have you heard of this with people with arthritis? The blood tests done at the hospital were fine. I'm confused and anxious about this, as well as very stressed about the illness in general. Any insight hugely appreciated. Thanks.
